I would recommend you undergo a full series pulmonary function test to see just how bad your lungs are. Also, you may benefit from a high resolution CT of the chest to see if you have any ongoing/active inflammation....if there is evidence of inflammation on the CT you may benefit from anti inflammatory medications.
