Good Morning - how scary for you and your Dad. I think that you should ring the BLF helpline:- (I have copied the info below for you)
What questions can we answer?
You can talk to us about anything - from how to manage your condition, to going on holiday. Or just to say hello.
Here are some of the things we've spoken to people about recently:
How to manage your condition
Information about specific conditions
Options about medication and treatments
What diet or exercise might be appropriate
Helping people to understand and accept their diagnosis
Learning how to manage flare –ups
How to arrange oxygen for holidays abroad
Welfare benefits that can be claimed.
We don’t have access to your medical records, so you may need to go back to your health care team for answers to some questions. And we can't diagnose you or comment on the results of any test or investigations. If you have questions like this, you should talk to a local health care professional.
We're only trained to provide advice on the treatment and management of conditions in the UK.
Call us on 03000 030 555.
We'll give you as much time as you need to talk about what's important to you. This means sometimes our lines might be busy when you call. If you can't get through, you can keep trying or leave us a message.
I hope that you can get some help - lots of love to you and to your Dad xxx
