In November 2000 I was diagnosed with CFA following a lung biopsy after experiencing severe shortness of breath and couhging since the summer. I had strong shaddows on my lungs when x-rayed. I was treated with large doses of steroids and immunosupressants. At this point my lung capacity was around 50% and the prognosis was not good. Unfortunately I experienced many side effects from all the drugs but it worked and now, 5 Years on I am completely drug free and was discharged from my specialist 2 years ago. My last lung function test was 99.5% and my lung scan was clear.
My specialist could not explain this outcome and my diagnosis was simplified to pneumonic alveolitis.
As far as I am concerned I experienced a miricle. Thank you to all those who helped treat me. :D
