  1. I was diagnosed with IPF in 2008, one month after my older brother died of it. He had had open heart surgery approximately 5 yrs before & had RA. He never smoked. In 2002 I was diagnosed with MCTD (unspecified). I hadn’t smoked for approx 30 yrs prior to 2008. I’m almost 82 now and al- though my disease is progressively worse, I’m on oxygen 24/7, CPAP, mycophenolic 360mg 4 per day, Prednisone 7.5mg per day, Aggrenox 25/200mg 2 per day, 7 stents (6 in RCA 1996, 1 in 2005). I don’t feel like an ‘ill’ person, but fatigue seems to be my big complaint. Have good Drs and so far so good, lol. My uneducated opinion is there is no difference in IPF & what I have!?!
