Aerobic, arm/depends: There are 2 separate questions here, both great! exercise is recommended for lung patients, with an emphasis on aerobic conditioning but also upper body weight training--which helps when short of breath. For fibrosis, chances of "removal" or cure depends on the cause. If no cause is known, less chance for resolution. See a pulmonologist (lung specialist) for evaluation.
