My 85 yr old husband was recently dx with IPF after pulmonologist reviewed results of CT scan. This doctor walked up through the films of the scan, explained the layers of fiber and the fluid in the bottom of both lungs. He told us very little except that there was no sure-thing treatment, but that he would start my husband on a test run with the antibiotic Cefdinir and Prednisone and see him one month later, which will be Jan 18, 2016--this coming Monday. The prescriptions seem to have helped, but my husband's condition seems to still get weaker and he has trouble breathing at night. We've done some researching, trying to get more familiar with this disease, but are still very confused. I'm making a list of Q's to take to the appnt and decided to ask for some help from those who have been through this before: Which Q's are most important to ask?
