Pulmonary Fibrosis diagnosis sometimes difficult
My experience with having my pulmonary fibrosis diagnosed was much quicker than John Morthanos ran into as told in his story here. My family doctor listened to my chest and heard something that alarmed him. He immediately sent me to an emergency clinic for an x-ray and the physician looked at it and declared "you have pulmonary fibrosis and I'm calling your doctor right away". Next came an appointment with a specialist who confirmed the diagnosis. The happy result for me was a lung transplant almost 12 years ago.
