Diagnosed with Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (Usual interstitial pneumonitis). The doctor gave us the Diagnosed yesterday, but the diagnosis was very limited in information, and wasnt satisfied with it. He didnt informed us how advance the IPF was or wat type it was because to my knowledge there is diferent types. He said theres no medinice or treatments, he just told us to come back in 3 months for another x-ray.

Should I take her to another Doctor. I need opinions on what to do, I am really worried. :(
