    The prevalence of recommended pulmonary rehab. for IPF patients still hasn’t reached the HMO industry. For example, Kaiser of Colorado avoids even mentioning much less prescribing rehab. to IPF patients — at an altitude that is anything but IPF-friendly!

    I’m a IPF survivor patient thanks to a lung trasplant in 2013..from the 3erd day after the trasplant I started doing exercise ..first 15 min and 1 month later I was doing 1 hour gym until today that I spend 2 hours in the gym….The IPF is almost gone and only have to take tacrolimus&certican inmunosupressors to keep my new lung protected against the attacks of my T cells ..each new day is a blessing..

    My husband has IPF and is going through the process to get on the transplant list. We live in an area where a formal pulmonary rehab is a long distance away.
