In brief: Maybe sarcoidosis?

..Usually a benign condition, but can cause lung or other organ scarring in a small % of patients.
It also sounds like you have a doctor, and for the complex situation you describe, you are better off asking questions of docs who know your history, than trying to figure it out online. I tell my patients, use information from the internet to get the questions to ask your doc, not the answers.
