In brief: Can't answer this
"lung scar" can mean a lot of things, only a few of which should interfere with your ability to work.
Many doctors refer to "lung scarring" when describing a condition called idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. This can be a disabling condition that is progressive and largely untreatable. If you have this its best to go to a center that runs ipf clinical trials. Search google for one near you if so.
