I have been diagnosed with IPF and am waiting for the results of the lung biopsy performed 2 weeks ago. The doctors seem in no hurry to give me a definitive answer and have only mentioned in passing that it's almost certainly IPF. I was in hospital in September having numerous tests, but nobody mentioned IPF. The Consultant just said ''she had never seen a CT scan like it'' but wouldn't explain why Only on the morning of the biopsy was IPF mentioned. Can they tell by the scans and biopsy what the progression might be, and how long I have had it? I have no idea what might happen next or when I will get the results as I have been told because of Christmas the Consultant can't fit me in to his clinic.
