My father is very ill with Rheumatoid Lung. He has both lungs affected throughout. He was on Remecade and most recently on Methotextrate. This has not helped. I have been searching for a prognosis. Physicians are not verbal. It seems to be a terminal condition. From all that I read there is not mich written about long term prognosis. Is there an average amount of time for life expectency? Please do not say it is up to the doctor. I am looking for documented life expectencies with bilateral diffuse rheumatoid lung disease. Thanks.
