Diagnosed with sensitivity pneumonia

I was diagnosed with this after having pneumonia earlier this year. Have copd and asthma. This type if pneumonia is from exposure to dust in my case. Have had this since mid March. Can't get rid of it. On oxygen and prednisone which helps. I need heart surgery but I can't get the surgery until the lungs clear up. Anybody have any info on the lungs please?

Hi Elizabeth. Pneumonia can be caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, or airborne irritants. There are more than 30 different causes. I suggest you ring the BLF helpline and speak to one of the nurses there. You can contact them during office hours on 03000 030 555. Welcome to the forum.
