The fibrosis is an irreversible procedure. It cannot be reverted once developed. However, of clinically more symptomatic like dyspnea than steroid course can be prescribed for that.

The pulmonary function test can be done to assess the severity of the lesion.

Clinical correlation needed in your case.

You can consult a nearby pulmonologist for detailed evaluation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
