Pulmonologist 's  Response
Loosing 10% of lung function is a very vague statement with out knowing the clinical features and results of tests like chest x ray, spirometry, oxygen saturation and a CT chest if it has been done. I suggest you consult a pulmonologist who can examine you in detail, carry out the necessary investigations and then guide you in the correct direction.
