commented on SL Letter of the Day: Love and Lyme
I guess I brought it up because if the doctor that diagnosed her was a quack, whatever treatment he/she put her on could be making things worse, not better.
I understand her suffering must be awful though, and I agree Dr. Brotto dropped the ball on her actual question.

A friend of mine, after a medical procedure (draining a pleural effusion), had a small leak in his lung and he did, in fact, inflate like a balloon for a few hours until it healed. Needless to say, it was pretty alarming. So it is technically possible. But I would say inducing this effect would be terribly unsafe in any setting other than an ICU. Writer and her boyfriend should just get an inflatable suit and explore this kink that way. Some fantasies are not worth the risk.
