Depends: Thant depends on the extenst of the fibrosis. If it is isolated and does not involve much of the lung, then the effects are probably clinically insignificant. But if the fibrosis is extensive then pulmonary function will be compromised. Only a pulmonologist can tell you for sure after evaluating you and the radiographic studies.
