I have just recently been in Hospital because my oxygen Sat levels fell to 78 and I couldn't breathe. Prior to this I have been coughing up mucous and feel generally exhausted for months - maybe even years, it crept up on me.
My discharge report says that I have extensive lung scarring and I am on 60mg prednisolone (have been out of hospital for almost 2 weeks) a day until my outpatient appointment on Monday.
They think that my condition is caused by some sort of allergen but we aren't entirely sure what as I am awaiting the results of blood tests for this.
What I really want to know is am I going to die of this? - people are being very cagey about that.
Thanks for any light you can shed on this.
