What is Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis?
- Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a condition that causes scar tissue to build up in the lung
- It can lead to shortness of breath and eventually respiratory failure, and is branded as the ‘assassin’.
- The early symptoms of the condition are often missed or mistaken for a cold or the flu
- IPF currently has no cure
When Amy was first diagnosed with IPF, doctors gave her a life expectancy of three to five years.
Thinking back to the shocking news about Loose Women last year, Katie said, “I couldn’t take it and when you hear” terminal, “you think she won’t be gone long.”
Amy discussed her well-being during the same interview and replied, ‘I’m not too bad.
‘I went to test with the transplant team this week, they are watching me, my lung function tests have gone down a little bit but that’s to be expected with what I have because it’s a progressive disease.
‘But they do all the tests on the other organs in your body to prepare you if they think you need a transplant – I’m not yet [on the transplant list] – and what they do is they look at everything to make sure you can handle it, your heart, liver and your kidneys and everything, and they’re still 100 percent, they’re fine.
“So the moment they go,” You’re too healthy, go and enjoy. “
