Oh my, please don't let my guesses scare you. I speak only from the knowledge of an occupational therapist, not a doctor. Yes, a history of pneumonia scars the lungs. I'm not saying you have emphysema, but maybe the doctor was saying it was an emphysema- like scarring. Make an appointment tomorrow so you don't worry needlessly! Maybe your ordering physician or a nurse practioner will even explain it on the phone.
