Wow, Barb, that's a lot you have going on right now! I always seem to be researching, though I've heard of this disease before, but one thing that I wanted to ask you re this-is that the only test (the x-ray) that you've had done to diagnose the Sarcoidosis?)
"HOW SERIOUS IS SARCOIDOSIS?
In over half the cases, sarcoidosis appears briefly and heals naturally. Sometimes the patient doesn't even know or do anything about it. From 20 to 30 percent of pulmonary sarcoidosis patients are left with permanent lung damage. And for a small percentage of patients, their sarcoidosis can become chronic, lasting for many years.
No one can predict how sarcoidosis will affect an individual patient. but several things are certain that may reassure the patient. Sarcoidosis is not contagious. And there is no evidence that it can be inherited, and passed from parents to children."
I hope you are okay! Be well.
