In brief: Complicated

very complicated disease process and treatment approach.
too complicated, unfortunately, for a discussion here. In brief, it depends on the severity of disease and residual lung function because compromised function will affect fetal development. Some treatments may be harmful and may need tight monitoring of blood concentrations. A physician with experience treating LAM can help risk stratify.
