Brief Answer:
No need to worry much.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Ask a doctor forum.
I can understand your concern.
If your CT is normal, no need to worry for fibrosis.
Honestly speaking, no doctor can give you 100% prediction.
But I don't think you are should worry about fibrosis development.
Better to focus on allergy management.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
