Hello everyone. I'm a 51 year old lady who was diagnosed with Lung Sardcoidosis yesterday. I've had problems for two years gradually worsening during that time. During the last 4 months I've had blood tests, a CT scan, breathing analysis and a bronchoscopy resulting in the diagnosis. I honestly thought I may have lung cancer as appointments towards the end were brought forward readily so hearing I had sardcoidosis was a relief. However, as the Lung Consultant wasn't very familiar with the disease and rather vague, I've researched the web and the forum here and I'm now very concerned I may have under estimated this disease. I've been prescribed initally with strong steroids being assessed with an appt with the Consultant in six weeks time with a view to reducing them. As I had a hysterectomy 18 months ago I've also been prescribed tablets to counteract the bone density problem. Has anyone been in a similar situation and what are your thoughts?
