I am 84 years old and in generally good health - apart from the following!
I have Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis, first diagnosed in 2013. My breathing only started giving me difficulties in 2017.
At the beginning of 2018 I was put on nintedanib, then in July 2018 I had a stroke. This was a simple stroke i.e. it's main effect was to paralyse the left side of my body. However this is a complication I could do without as the symptoms of IPF get mixed up with the after effects of the stroke. The recommendation of the stroke people regarding exercise is not to fight the post stroke fatigue that affects me still, but IPF wise I need plenty of exercise.
I have recently been issued with a fairly hefty oxygen concentrator, instigated by my GP, but a recent visit to my hospital consultant suggested that it would be more appropriate for me to have an ambulatory device. I await developments.
