Surgery

Hi everyone, its been a while since i posted anything on here so i hope everyone is getting on ok and feeling well. Following a visit with my Consultant respiratory physician today for my recent scan and xray results, and because of the severity of my condition it is likely that my only option is a double lung transplant, apart from being terrified of the idea i have done my research and am aware of the risks and implications and have come to terms with it, i would like to ask any members in your own words if you or know someone who has had this operation and how was the experience.

Thank you.

  • hi im same been told I will eventually need double lung transplant, I don't have a clue what I will do. I will decide when my consultant decides its time for him to refer me to transplant centre. its a tough decision to make.

  • Thank you.

  • Hi not came across anyone on this site. But I am a newbie. However on the copduk Facebook site there are are a few people awaiting the call for transplant and a few who have been transplanted. They do not post that often. There are a number of people who like you are approaching a decision on transplant and you may find posts on this site useful.

  • Thank you.
