It Is Now 3 Years Since I've Been Diagnosed With COVID. I Have Lung Damage Because Of It. Pulmonologist Calls It COVID Fibrosis.
A myCOVIDteam Member asked a question 💭

I see the Pulmonologist 3 times a year and take Cortisone tablets daily. My oxygen level sits around 95%. I have been experiencing lower oxygen levels in the evening and in the morning when I wake up. My Pulmonologist has suggested lung replacement, but said that it is not very successful. Has anyone else experienced what I have and if so, do you have any suggestions?

Not everything works for everybody and I feel my lungs is much better now that I am using my sereflo pump correctly. My homeopath told me he would not tgive me any medication as there comes the stage where you need to use western meds. Keep sttrong Doloris

Hi Linda, the Pulmonologist whom I see does specialize in Pulmonary Fibrosis and he has tried a very expensive medication, for Fibrosis, Esbriet, on me, but it does not do very much for me. I do daily breathing exercises, but the Pulmonologist is very careful about exercises, because I had a collapsed lung two months after my initial stint in hospital with COVID and he's scared that the scar on my lung might open up again. I am not on oxygen, but do have a portable oxygen concentrator and a oxygen cylinder just in case I need it.

I too have pulmonary Fibrosis from Covid. I have been on oxygen since having Covid Pneumonia in September 2021. You really need to see a Pulmonologist that specializes in Pulmonary Fibrosis. Also ask your doctor to prescribe Pulmonary Rehab. It has helped me.
