    Can partial lung collapse be reversed?

    I'm 70yrs old. I had whooping cough aged 7 and had severe complications, treated by Prof. Guy Scadding (sp) at Brompton Lung Hospital in the UK. I find all these years later, that I have a partially collapsed lung. My heart is strong and I'm physically active but now find I get very tired. How can I increase my lung capacity and oxygen intake? I really need to get into hard exercise again.

    Walking up stairs  and deep breathing physio exercises will be a help.
