Can you live with half a lung?
My nephew has been saying for years that he has only a half of lung working. I don't believe this as he has been able to walk long distances. I have COPD and know how short of breath i get just walking a few feet so i find it very hard to believe he has only a half lung. He does do breathing treatments when he feels like it and only takes his inhaler when he wants to so could you answer this question for me so i can point it out to him? I believe he is a lier.
Additional Details
But my nephew has never had surgery anywhere at any time.

Yes you can live with only one lung, maybe only part of his lung is functioning. Ask his parents what the doctor has told them.

Yes you can live with half a lung. You have two lungs total in your body and you don't need both of them to go about living.

You can! Sometimes with lungs they do a lobectomy - or remove part of the lung.

You have 5 lobes all together.

Well, the only way he would know would be if he had tests done. If there is tissue that isn't getting oxygen this will cause it to die - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lung_abscess
