Brief Answer:
Possibility of post viral BOOP is more.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Health Care Magic.
I can understand your concern.
By your history and description, possibility of post viral BOOP (Bronchiolitis Obluterans Organising Pneumonia) is more.
Ground glass opacities on CT with normal blood reports and symptoms of extensive cough an breathlessness are suggestive of BOOP more.
So continue steroids and inhaled bronchodilators.
Usual time of recovery is 1-2 weeks.
Please let me know
1. Is she smoker?

Please reply me answers of above asked questions, so that I can guide you better. I will be happy to help you further. Wishing good health to your wife. Thanks.
