Respiratory Consultation Today.Mattcass

Hi Guys, Big meeting in Edinburgh today and i'm sure they are going to put the transplant on hold again, It seems i got some lung space back from somewhere my last test two weeks ago showed improvement in my lung capacity and there's more to come i will lose two stone by May which will improve my mobility as well. Will keep you updated later this evening.Matt/Fran

I work for an Edinburgh 'company' and have considered moving up to make the tavelling easier etc (I do work from home a lot and travel with my job). I wasn't aware there was a lung transplant speciality in Scotland. I have been reluctant to move as I want to be treated at Freeman.

There isn't a lung transplant speciality in Scotland. A team from Newcastle come up to meet prospective patients but I know Edinburgh work closely with Newcastle. I am very happy with the treatment I get. Live dangerously and move north!

Hope everything went well MC. Losing weight was definitely the best thing I have done and has made such a difference to what I am able to do. You could try my sit to stand challenge if you like and Fran too. ref: my last post.

You know they say no pain no gain, well all I can say is the pain you cope with you must be gaining a flippin lot.

Your a blinkin hero MC in anyones book.

Ha Ha MC, I've just got in from running a marathon, channel swim and a shift at the local quarry humping boulders around. I'm sure you'll soon catch up though. :)

Seriously though MC get yourself fit first and then give it a go at a steady pace to start with.
