approx 5years ago i was diagnosed with ILD and also a nodule in lung. I went on to have 6monthly ct scans for 3 years with no mdication. I was then told no changes appeared and then discharged. I hen went on to need 2 stents due to narrowed artery and 80 per cent blockage and told i had heart disease and angina. I have been suffering terrible breathlessness and chest pains and apart from drugs for angina and a number of hospital admittances have received no treatment for fibrosis and repearedly told by doctor that there is no cure. I have had a lung function test which i am told is ok and my stats are 95 but I am so breathless and coughing up all the time.. I have now been referred back to lung clinic going for an x ray and giving a phlegm sample. I realise there is no cure for this but keep reading about people on medication and even oxygen who appear to be receiving some treatment. I can only wait now for my appointment but really have no expectations apart from discharge again. I can only think that my case is a lost cause. Sorry for being such a downer as i realise that there is always someone much wose than me.
