The doctor tells us that my husband has scared lungs. The only tests that have been done is a lung function test. He is on oxygen at night and whenever he s active. We are seeking a specialist for a second opinion. Are there other tests that can be done to give us more information? So far we have only been told that his breathing will continue to get worse.
