Dear Mr apurva, I am a pulmonologist Working at CMC,vellore.I can understand your concern about your mother and her sufferings.Your mother has been diagnosed to have Pulmonary Fibrosis according to your mail.This is a progressive disease and is idiopathic.The treatment options available are not very fantastic so far.However,what so ever treatment are available,they are aimed to prevent the progresion of the disease.But the damage which has happened to lung cannot be reversed.Then which patient will improve on medications and who will not cannot be predicted.This disease is rare,but at our place,it being the highest referral centre,we are seeing almost 4-5 patients a week.If your mother can travel,then we can do her evaluation here at CMC,if you wish to.
