Hi joyce1951 and welcome to the community at what must be a worrying time for you. Many of us here will be aware of the early days of uncertainty and not knowing. I cannot answer your question, but if you post in the Lung Group someone there may have experience of this. I also notice you have posted in the ask a nurse section, and I am sure you will get a professional answer there when the nurse picks up your post. Best wishes.
