Lets review your que: Your lungs are lined by 2 thin layers named pleura. Trauma, pulmonary fibrosis, asthma/COPD can cause a break in the lining allowing air to fill this space.

Wedge resection right lung 1/15/15. Still have chest tube in due to small air leak. Painful barking cough just started. What is it?
Nonspecific: Could be a normal reaction from the breathing tube you had during the surgery. Could also be an upper respiratory infection. Other than causing pain at the incision site, its probably not dangerous. Ask your doctor when he/she is making rounds, or at your next visit. Can try some cough suppressant in he mean time.

Troponin: Troponin leak associated with chest pain is an MI until proven otherwise, this is likely why your dad is in the hospital. Discuss the situation with the doctor taking care of him.

Sometimes: Nothing available for the mitral or tricuspid valves yet, but the aortic valve can be replaced with a transcatheter inserted valve. This is not for everyone though. It is still considered rather experimental, and reserved only for those who are unable to have open heart surgery. I look forward to advances in these procedures, and hope one day there is a routine, non-ohs alternative. ...Read more

I suffer tiredness&discomfort in chest and heart beats during activities,with echo result of 3valves mild leak,mild pulmonary HTN+ history of HTN,19yo?
Chest discomfort: The valve findings are not severe enough to cause symptoms, but the pulmonary hypertension as well as systemic hypertension are of concern. I recommend a treadmill stress test, 24 hour ambulatory heart monitor and pulmonary function testing for further evaluation. Blood tests for thyroid function,anemia,iron and magnesium are advised.If you don't have one, a cardiologist should be involved. ...Read more

Cholecystectomy several months ago. Now burning chest and stomach. Taking sucralfate but still burns. What other tests to check no bile leaks or stone?
I had spontaneous pneumomediastinum. My CT scan noted "minimal interlobular septal thickening @ lung apices consistent w/pulmonary congestion". What does that mean and did the sp cause it?
Spontaneous pneumo-: Mediastinum by itself is benign and resolves on its own, as opposed to pneumothorax which can be dangerous. Sp can be caused by activities that rasie pressure in the airway, such as in trumpet players or extensive coughing. The septal thickening is most commonly seen with fluid in the lung/pulmonary edema, which wouldnt itself cause sp unless it made you cough a lot. ...Read more
