First they said asbestosis, then sarcodosis, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, collagen vascular disease, rheumitoid lung, than scleraderma and now they are saying "No fibrosis", just a partially collapsed lung due to my being over weight. :rolleyes: Next they're going to ask me to watch them "pull a rabbit out thier hat"!!! :mad: The only DX they got right was their accidently finding I have mesothelial hyperplasia (pre-mesothelial cancer) , but even that was messed up - they refused to disclose it - I found out by reading my medical charts myself!!!!!!!:eek:
