The left lung function of old pulmonary tuberculosis is poor if it is improved

Description Of Condition:

Hello, doctor. First of all, I wish you a happy new year. Speaking of my situation, I had a very serious pulmonary tuberculosis in 2007. I was 16-17 years old. After treatment, my condition has improved, but unfortunately, the left lung has collapsed, accompanied by cavities and pulmonary bullae. In fact, at that time, both lungs were infected, but the right lung was not so serious and did not collapse, so I had to rely on the right lung for the rest of my life. I don't smoke or drink, and my life law is OK. I am engaged in it work. It has been peaceful coexistence for so many years. After all, I'm still young and really don't want to do this all my life, so I always hope to keep going to fitness and increase muscle, because I always weigh only 107 kg / 170cm, and I also have a very low self-esteem. Recently, I bought an instrument that can test vital capacity on the Internet. I tried to test that the maximum exhalation volume is about 2800m / L. Later, I kept thinking, is there a way to expand the vital capacity of my right lung to supplement the lack of left lung capacity? Suppose I keep running or do aerobic exercise for a long time, can my vital capacity reach the level of ordinary men? I just want to be strong.
