Chance of lungs fibrosis
Hi doctor, It has been 10 months since I diagnosed with covid 19. My lungs were 40% affected and I was hospitalized for 5 days. But my sp02 never went down. So, I did ct scan after 2 month ( in may) month and it was showing mild fibrotic bands Does it mean that I got fibrosis? Will I still have fibrosis chances after 10 month?
