    • Hi George, thank you for joining the PF forums. Welcome!

      • Thank you for sharing George I was diagnosed with IPF in March of this year although I have had breathing issues for the past 6 years.My family Dr.was treating me for COPD.I am on oxygen 24/7 my life as I knew it is gone so I must adapt to this new life.I will be going on OFEV on Thursday and hope I have good results.

        • Hi @brian-thomson, goodluck with starting Ofev today! I’ll keep my fingers crossed that it goes well for you. I am also on this drug and experienced very little side effects, so I am pleased with it so far. Hope the clear diagnosis of IPF vs. COPD and a subsequent treatment regimen will help alleviate some of your breathing issues. Feel free to write anytime, this forum is filled with wonderful people who are happy to help if they can.

          Warm regards,

        • Hi Brian, I have also been on oxygen 24/7 since Jan 3rd 2018, life changing to say the least, worked full time in December at a job I loved ….heading to Toronto on Jan 11, listed now and meetingnthe surgeon on Mon.
