    I was diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis about a year ago. I will be 80 years old in October. I am not on any medication. My daughter (44) is adamant that I have the “good”. kind of PF, and asked my pulmonologist, and she looked a little scared and shook her head. Everything I read says “IPF”. Are there indeed. 2 different types.????? Thank you very much!!!!!!!
