Hi, I hope someone can help or offer advice.
My partner (28 years) had been referred to respiratory services back in August. He was referred due to bringing up blood in the morning. This has now ceased and has been related to (diagnosed and now controlled) coeliac disease. However following investigations and subsequent CT scan it showed ground glass. It was confirmed that this is not cancer. They have ruled this out completely. He has no other symptoms no real breathlessness or coughing. He has been putting on weight and feels healthy. His haemoglobin is good and since August when he was referred his respiratory function tests have remained the same. He has recently given up smoking. They are waiting for two months to see how he gets on. I am pregnant with our second child and the anxiety is overwhelming. I’m not coping well as I fear it’s serious. I don’t fully understand the term ground glass. Is it always something sinister? Can it be from an old infection? From childhood? Please can someone shed some light? Could this possibly be nothing to worry about?
