How do you go about getting help for lung transplant ,will you be considered if you used to be a smoker ?
Trying to see if it's a good choice for me
When is stem cell therapy a better alternative than lung transplant?
I was just curious if anyone on here has undergone a double lung transplant. My dr. said that's possibly where i'm headed in the future. I'm fairly young and quite healthy with the exception of COPD, but I'm really apprehensive. Any information?
Research shows life expectancy is only short lived, however I am only 57 and on 24 hr O2 together with pulmanory hypertention which has made me pretty much house bound anyway. Could any recipiants help me with their story?
My COPD consists of Emphysema and IPF (Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis ). It is getting very serious, very rapidly. Was wondering if anyone else is facing this scenario? I have been recommended for a Lung Transplant and quite frankly....unsure if I really want to go through with it if I am approved.
Any Member here that has had to face this? I would really like to hear your thoughts on this. Thank you!
Where can I get 2 full time helpers in case I get a single lung transplant? Am in Ventura County, CA.
