Im unsure if this is the correct place to post
But I went to the walk-in clinic because i had some trouble breathing..
The walki in doctor sent me to the emergency after looking at my chest Xray..
A CT scan revealed I have an elevated right Hemidiaphragm.
The problem is the emergency physician sent me home saying everything was fine..???
Then I searched the medical term - and it says this is a serious defect of the breathing system??
Whats going on here..how can i be sent home - if the condition is described as serious?
I hope someone can shed some light.

Elevated hemidiaphragm is a condition in which half of a patient's diaphragm appears to be raised or elevated.

My strong recommendation is to see your physician and find out what is going on and what treatment you may need. Do not let the ER visit take the place of your regular physician.
