BOOP Recovery

Hi, anybody can share the experience with BOOP? My mother is on 25mg prednisone now, she was on 80mg in January. She's better....... but her oxygen saturation still drops with exertion....... is it going to be like this forever? I am very worried.

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.
