I asked my dermatologist doctor in the middle of the pandemic if I was at higher risk for pulmonary fibrosis due to covid and my keloids, they said no. That these are two different structures. I’ve never keloid on my legs or chin where I get bad acne even though I have the capacity to.thanks for the replies. Generally pretty hard to get a transplant on top of lung transplants in particular not lasting very long while being on immunosuppressants for the rest of your life. That sounds awful.
My bet is Golgi apparatuses would become less productive due to a myriad of factors. And the body’s ability to rid itself of senescent cells would likely play a factor in this as well. And I can definitely see COPD and asthma playing a large role as pre-existing conditions being a factor in the ability for glycosaminoglycans to be in healthy amounts in the EC matrix. It’s a lot to think about. Keeping it simple: scarring is bad, mmkay?
