Brief Answer:
Pulmonary function test

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

If you have got the pulmonary function test done, please do attach the report of the same here. If not done please consult a pulmonologist for the same. The test indicates type of respiratory disease, based on which the disease prognosis can be postulated.

Usually, obstructive or restrictive lung disease are incurable and only can be treated to prevent the recurrences.

I shall be more specific in my opinion if you can get me the pulmonary function test report.

Waiting for your response,
