I was diagnosed in 2009 after being in hosptial for weeks. When healthy enough I went back for lung biopsies to diagnose the BOOP. Was on prednison from 2/9 until 9/11. It was a VERY gradual weaning. I was (and still am) on Imuran. That has really helped. Still get out of breath on hills and inclines. I since have been diagnosed with Raynauds and Sjogren's. Good luck to your mother.
