This one?

...extensive upper lobe emphysema with mild to moderate emphysema in lower lobes.There is reticulation and traction bronchiectasis in the middle and lower lobes with a subpleural distribution. Minor tree-in-bud nodularity in both lung apices is noted suggesting bronchiolitis due to either aspiration or infection(possibly sub clinical). Numerous small volume mediastinal lymph nodes noted .Conclusion ....Appearnces are those of upper lobe( emphysema with UIP). or sarcoidosis as indicated in history is uncertain. The current extent basal fibrosis has increased since scan in 2015.......On other page he has put diagnosis pulmonary fibrosis-other (free text) known sarcoidosis but referred for recent symptomatic decline and ct findings not classical for sarcoidosis.........

Thank you if anyone is reading this he said he wants to do a broncoscopy as he thinks I have other things going on but he doesn't think I have nor ever did have sarcoidosis and I was told in novmerber by him that he was waiting the results back from Liverpool hospital from my biops done in nov 2011 when I was diagnosed after with sarcoidosis ....As I said I went into hospital had these lung tests done and he again said he was waiting for biop results as he didn't want to start me on meds until he and his colluges look at them ...My point is I have nottt been on any lung medicatios since last APRIL ive been in bed with a terrible chest infection for 2 weeks and had 2 lots of antibiotics still have a cough like croup no steroids either for that .Surely this is wrong feeling so ill I rang hospital to see if they had had the results they wanted from Liverpool this was last week they said NO!!! I rang the hospital in Liverpool and asked why they hadn't been sent se said....THEY HAVENT ASKED FOR THEM..she then very kindly sent them for me and that was last tues and ive still heard nothing back from my hospital...I feel like I will have a breakdown soon if I don't get someone telling me the truth of whats going on why am I waiting so long to go on treatments ,I'm so tired of feeling like I'm hitting my head against a brick wall and getting nowhere....I just feel so weak with it all....so sorry to be so long winded in typing this will need a long lie down now ha ....where next?

Hi dilly, it seems as if the doctors are thinking you don’t have sarcoidosis but they want to do more tests to be sure.

I do hope you find out just what’s going on very soon and wish you well. Xxxx

as the letter I posted says they said they where waiting on results getting to them from my biopsy in 2111 I phoned Liverpool hospital who said they hadn't been requested yet so the secretary faxed them to them last tues and I'm still not hearing anything xxx

I think it might be under the heading of sarcoidosis tb I'm so sorry to be a nuisance

Your not a nuisance, never think that on this forum, what you are is extremely anxious and stressed as anyone would be in your circumstances dilly20, so please don't worry about expressing yourself on hear. So sorry to hear you are very poorly on top of everything else. What about your G.P could you go and talk to him about all of this? Maybe he could get things moving for you. Other than that I don't know what else you can do to be honest. Please let us know how you get on friend? 🤞 ✋️
