My dad has IPF - he isn’t telling us much!! He just seems to have been diagnosed and sent on his way. Turns out he should have been reviewed year ago but his files got mixed up. At recent appointment with hospital consultant he was told his diagnosis goes back over 3 years (he claims no one told him) with a 3-5 year prognosis. He asked about drugs and was told not bad enough for them and all he got was a flu jab. I am watching him get weaker and frailer - he still forces himself to walk each day but seems to have constant chest infections and cough. He never seems to see same GP twice. I just think this needs to be gripped but don’t know what to do about it. I live in Northern Ireland and dad is 76 apart from lung issues fit as a fiddle. Any advice welcomed.
