Mariska Hargitay recovering from surgery for collapsed lung

March 9, 2009

(ChattahBox) — The chest pains Law & Order: SVU’s Mariska Hargitay suffered last week during filming on ‘Law & Order: SVU,’ were again a relapse of her collapsed lung condition! Although Hargitay was hoping to return to work after reportedly having her second surgery for the condition last week, it now seems that she will be missing a few weeks of SVU’s shooting schedule in order to fully recuperate. This was the third time Hargitay had been hospitalized for a collapsed lung since December. The star had been sidelined over the holidays and then again on Jan. 12 with a pneumothorax — the medical term for the condition. Maybe someone in the medical community can share with me how something like this happens 3 times in a row, without additional traumas? In any case we wish the highly popular Mariska a very speedy complete recovery.
