Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

Posted by @frane1939, Dec 31, 2018

I am curious about the hoarseness my husband is having. It seems to be getting worse and at times, it is difficult for me to understand him when he speaks. I am wondering if others with this disease are having the same issues; and, if so, what they are doing if anything about it.

I experience hoarseness on and off. Sipping Traditional Medicinals herbal teas – Throat Coat and Breathe Easy I find helpful.

@frane1939 – Hello! Is your husband's doctor aware that his hoarseness has gotten so severe that you can't understand him at times? Perhaps it's more scar tissue? Has he been ill lately with a cold?

He has not had a cold; and, yes and no about the doctor. I told him in the past about the hoarseness being so bad at times, not only myself, but others are having issues understanding him. He will be seeing his doctor this month and I will mention it again. In the past, when I mentioned it, he sent him to the ENT doctor to determine if there were any nodules which may be affecting the hoarseness. It was determined by the ENT that it was his fibrosis. Perhaps, it is time for another XRay.

Wish I could be more helpful.

Thanks for the reminder. I had ordered the Breathe Easy a while ago when someone mentioned it on this site. I will have him try it.
