My child was born with 1 lung and because of this her heart has shifted towards the middle of her chest. She is now 10 years old and for the most part she has done great. Her one lung has expanded and looks much like one big lung which is great. She has to have surgery due to her trachea twisting because of the absence of her right lung. They will place a device or saline filled implant of some sort to take place for the absent lung that way it will hold her trachea in place and prevent further twisting. I would love to hear from other mothers out there with children being born with just one lung.
