Years ago I found this pic of my father on my mom’s tablet & saved it for obvious reasons. Lol. My dad had to take very high doses of prednisone for many years to avoid rejection of his transplanted lung. He has since tapered down and lost this weight. Prednisone is a life-saving medication with every side effect imaginable - including weight gain. It is just one of handfuls worth of medications my Dad takes every day because of the single lung transplant that saved his life. #HFD to this guy who survived #IdiopathicPulmonaryFibrosis aka ‘IPF’

    What a beautiful photo and post. We offer a free app for pulmonary fibrosis patients, including those post transplant. It’s an excellent tool to track and monitor the condition as well as share data collected between Dr visits with the medical team. Available for iPhone and android.
