My uncle has been diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis due to Rheumatoid Arthritis reaching his lungs. He was on a respirator for three weeks and now has a traech. We've been told by the lung specialist that they have no hope for him and he is in the end stages. All of the doctors agree with her, except for the arthritis doctor (who failed to realize the arthritis reached his lungs in the first place). The arthritis doctor has had him on 1000 miligrams of steroids a day, and now she also started him on chemotherapy!! None of the other doctors seem to be in accordance with her.....is this a rare treatment for Pulmonary Fibrosis? We, as a family, think the doctor is only doing this to make up for her lack of medical attention to begin with. Any suggestions???Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
