Re: Should I be concerned?

Thank you. This appears to be a duplicated post from the other day, did you mean to post something else in response to my last question?

Elaine.

Re: Should I be concerned?

Thank you, yes, makes absolute sense. My mother also suffered for just a few years with rheumatoid arthritis so I guess a very complex case for her consultant. She was still given a CFA diagnosis and the same appears on her death certificate. She initially presented with classic finger clubbing and ...

Re: Should I be concerned?

Thank you so much, that is really helpful. The coroners office is chasing the post-mortem report for me but it seems to be taking some time as does a response from the consultant (I know they are all busy people). So, I am making the most of this forum but keeping in mind that I do not have all of t...

Re: Should I be concerned?

Re: Should I be concerned?

Hello, yes, it does help, thank you. I am fit and healthy as far as I know, and yes I have had those checks. My brother did have heart problems but I know enough about IPF to know that he would have died fairly soon anyway, my mum died after just 9 months. I will talk to my children about not smokin...

Should I be concerned?

Hello, my mother died in 2001 of Cryptogenic Fibrosing Alveolitis just 9 months after diagnosis, aged 58. My brother has recently passed away (feb 15) aged 45. I had not seen him for a few years (last time he was in reasonable health with no signs of lung disease). He died of aortic and mitral steno...
