American Lung Association states "In pulmonary fibrosis, once the lung tissue becomes scarred, the damage cannot be reversed. Because of this, lung transplant (a surgical procedure that involves replacing one or both of your diseased lungs with healthy lungs) is a treatment option your doctor may suggest." Also the association provides information on the lung transplant evaluation process.
When considering a lung transplant, the Care Partner is critical.
