Just over a week ago, the abscess that was removed almost 12 months ago from my rear end oucha!!!! decided to make a come back so Doc put me on a week of antibiotics. On the 6th night of taking them the phone rings at 2 oclock in the morning and at once I knew it was the transplant team. They say they have a lung that may be suitable for me and to make my way up to the hospital while they do more tests. I new that the abscess was going to be a problem as I was took off the transplant list when it first appeared so I had to tell them about it. The transplant co-ordinator left the phone and discussed it with the surgeon who decided to play safe and say it was a no go. She returned and very gently gave the bad news to me so its back to getting the abscess situation sorted out before I can return to the list once more.
Its a roller coaster ride like no other being on the transplant list Healthunlockeders but luckily I'm strong and can cope quite well with what comes my way.
On a brighter note, hopefully someone out there got the lung and is doing well and not to forget there has to be somebody out there grieving the loss of a loved one.
