Hi there!

Well, without knowing the relevant clinical details or a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to comment specifically on the situation. Honeycombing is usually seen with interstitial lung disease often seen in association with autoimmune conditions. It would be best to discuss the situation, the suggested management plan and the expected prognosis in detail with your treating pulmonologist.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
