I was originally diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, a disease resulting in progressive scarring of the lungs, around 5 years ago.  It was found as a result of an abdominal CT scan that captured the bases of my lungs.  I have had no symptoms (and followed by a pulmonologist) until summer of 2019.  At that time, I started with the Interstitial Lung Disease Program at the U of MN.  I’ve been on medications to slow the progression of the fibrosis since last fall.  I am presently on oxygen at night and for activity.  This fall, I was evaluated for a double lung transplant, and was accepted.  I was listed on December 28.
