greassy111,

The treatment options for pulmonary fibrosis (scarring in the lung) are very limited. There is no evidence that any medications can help this condition, since scarring is permanent once it has developed.

Sorry.

Is it possible that you could get a waiver for the small lung scar? The scarring is not an active disease process and it is not progressive.


Good luck.
