My consultant decided today to refer me for a lung transplant assessment. There are 3 main things they look for.
1. Weight and BMI, I am and have always been very tiny never above 7st my entire life.
2. Bone density, mine is border line although after a year of treatment my bone doctor was very happy my scan showed a marked improvement.
3. Lung function they like it between 18 - 30 mine is 19. Begs the question why did my other consultant not refer me before when it was 23, her words I wasn't ill enough.
Not to mention that because of my size they would look to using a child's lungs making the my chances even slimmer. (which in its self a really horrible thought)
And the anti rejection drugs they use can suppress your appetite.
So all in all I don't really understand why he's referring me, I would say my chances are non existent at best.
