Hello Stephanie smith,
For the diagnosis of BOOP (Bronchiolitis obliterans
) the usual investigations done are CT Scan
and Lung biopsy
. Lung biopsy is confirmatory of BOOP and as you have your lung biopsy confirming it as BOOP, the probability of misdiagnosis is very less.
On the other hand the symptoms of Acid Reflex are different. If you have acid reflex you have burning sensation in the centre of you chest, pain in your stomach etc.
One point i would like to add is that prednisolone
can have a side effect of gastric ulcer problem. Hope this has helped you. Regards, Dr.Ismail
