I've finally had the results of my lung biopsy and it has confirmed that I have Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and the type I have is usual interstitial pneumonia. I'm now waiting to see another Consultant regarding possible treatment. Unfortunately the wounds from the lung biopsy became infected and are being packed and dressed daily, I've had a lot of pain from the sites. Ironically the Consultant wrote to my GP saying the wounds are healing nicely; at least that gave me a chuckle. I think what I find most frustrating is the length of time this is all taking. It's now 14 weeks since I was admitted with SAT's of 70%! Does diagnosis and follow up usually take this long?
