Hi folks, I am new here and this is my first post.
I was a relatively fit male of 47 until last autumn when I started to feel tired and have an annoying constant cough. So I finally listened to the wife and went to see my GP in October. After numerous tests, I had a lung biopsy in Feb 2017, two weeks later I was diagnosed with having IPF. Everything is just so scary at the moment with lots and lots of information coming at me from every direction. My FVC is 56 %.
Last week i started my medication nintedanib.
I was wondering if those of you out there who have IPF and / or are taking nintedanib could offer some real life advice on this condition and how its effects you I have read quite a lot of stuff but still feel I know nothing.
Many thanks in advance.
