4 Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Patients Share Their Stories


The British Lung Foundation has a series of videos featuring idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) patients sharing their stories. The patients come from all walks of life and their journeys are all very different.

In this video, Joyce explains that it took four years before she received her idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis diagnosis. By the time she was diagnosed, the disease had progressed so much that she needed a double lung transplant. Joyce talks about her life before the lung transplant and how much it has changed for the better since the procedure.

Five questions about pulmonary fibrosis you should ask your doctor.

    I am really interested in these stories, as I also have IPF. But the loud music is annoying and I am unable to understand some of the guests who are talking. Is there anyway you could TYPE OUT WHAT THEY ARE SAYING SO I COULD JUST READ THESE STORIES? tHANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOU HELP IN THIS MATTER.

    • Tim Bossie says:

      We are sorry for the videos DB. These videos are not our own production, but those that we feel will help our readers with their personal battles with PF. Unfortunately, we can not take the time to transcribe each video for our posts. However, there are some videos from YouTube that do have CC on them where you can read rather than listen.

    Thank you so much for your kindness in replying to my question. I certainly understand and as you suggested I will go to you tube and check it out. Again my sincere thanks to you for your kindness in helping me in this matter.
    Best Regards, Dana
