in october my 58 year old husband had another bout of pleurisy, this time because antibiotics were not helping he went for a chest x ray after 6 weeks our doctor said he has fibrosis so sent him to a specialis who we saw today (really nice man) i had looked up on the internet all about fibrosis so was prepared for anything today (didn't tell hubby tho' he would not be able to take it). Dr said cfa probable he is to have hrct next week. Dr showed and explained his xray and in fact our doctor had said it was only a little bit by specialist Dr pointed it out all over both lungs and said is was 'thicker' at the bottom of each lung upto around quarter way up. I told specialist i had been on internet and he just glossed over it. My husband has had chest problems for the past 10 years always susceptable to infection and atypical pneumonia three times, his breathing has always been bad just walking upstairs for the past 18 months. So my question is - is this early stage cfa or is it quite advanced? someone please answer. thanks
