Hey guys, I'm a 24 year old from Australia, was diagnosed with Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis (autoimmune) at the end of last year, been experiencing the symptoms for about a year. I've already gone through the biopsy and my first complete lung lavage of both sides. Because of the illness I've left my job due to stress and fatigue and now need to find a new career path that's more suiting. Been searching around the internet for a while now to see if there's a place where others in my shoes are having an open discussion and talking about dealing with everyday life, and due to how rare this is, it seems like there's almost no one out there. Wanting to know what success others have had with ongoing lung lavages, oxygen therapy, and GM-CSF spray, and even physiotherapy or finding a right diet (anything that makes a little difference) has it made life easier? At the moment I'm not the clinical trial yet and not on oxygen therapy, although I always feel great on oxygen/just coming out of hospital after the lavage. Wanting to hear from anyone with how they've coped and if there's any other forums/communities where people regularly talk about this.
