I found this website by doing a websearch. I was diagnosed with IPF last year.
After my pulmonologist reviewed a old CT scan I had done, he said that the process had started years ago even though I experienced limited symptoms until last year I live in a high altitude area, Nevada and I started to notice more SOB with less exertion and finally got evaluated. I have come to the conclusion the Stem Cell procedure or lung transplant will utimately be the only choices. I am thankful I have found this site and have learned an incredible amount of knowledge in a short time. I believe as Barbara believes that Stem Cell Reseach offers an almost unlimited potential once it is fully understood and properly harnessed. Barbara I would appreciate if you would send by private mess a list of doctors/clinics that have come recommended by your members. Thanks again.:)
