  • HI

    Very pleased for you! I have heard very good things about this particular procedure. I am a 65 year old female with severe COPD & Severe Pulmonary Hypertension I too am hoping to qualify for this LVR surgery at some point as it was mentioned as a possibility by a couple of consultants at Harefield .Keeping fingers crossed. Once again

    Once again, Congratulations.
