My dad has been diagnosed with Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. I’m not sure what that is (apart from what I’ve read on NHS Choices) and wondered whether anyone could enlighten me.
So far, the NHS specialist consultants have simply said that he should get ready to die! Brutal and abrupt, but I guess because he is in his 80’s they have given up on him.
Therefore, I would like to know where I can turn to get an alternative opinion and or treatment, and what I can do to extend his life as they have given him weeks, months, or a year to live.
Thank you in anticipation of your swift response to my post.
