My partner has been ill for coming up on 4month. He's 29 non smoker non drinker. Works every hour for our family but unfortunately after a bad cold he was sent for further ct scans etc. After oxygen levels dropping to a low of 83 he was admitted to hospital for 2 weeks. He had blood tests every day and after talks of sarcoidosis he then had a small nose biopsy and a bronchoscopy of the lungs taking away 2 small parts. We were very hopeful this would give us a definite answer but unfortunately we were told it wasn't enough. He has been started on 8 steroid tablets every morning for 8 weeks with the talks of an open lung biopsy. As a family we are really struggling and as a partner I feel I'm not understanding as much as I should. Has anyone had this uncertainty before? Also has anyone been on the steroids and noticed a difference. I really enjoy this forum and although I am not the one with the health problems it does give me hope that one day our family can go back to normal. Thank you
