My mother has been sick since April 2006 - it was first pnemonia (sp) and since she wasnt' getting better she went to a horribly lung doctor who didnt' explain what was going on and just gave her medication...she is now sick again and we just got back from another lung doctor who was great because he explained everything. She received a cat scan - and it shows some type of scarring on both lungs on the bottom. She is getting a biopsy done tomorrow - but I am extremely worried....could this be fibrosis? She has been tested for TB and that has been rules out. What else could she have if not fibrosis? The doctor put her on oxygen because when she walked she had 86% oxygen and when she sat she had 91%.
Any advice will be appreciated - I am so worried. The doctors before this new one has been sending her away saying it was pnemonia when it never was ..... and this is the first time a lung doc wanted to do a biopsy.
