My Mothers lung transplant evaluation
We are awaiting a packet in the mail detailing the needed tests and where to have them done.She understands the commitment as well as I. Pre and post transplant. It's a long road ahead, but I look forward to the day when my mother is able to breath on her own again without 5 liters of continuous flow oxygen.
Did you know they can remove both damaged lung, and transplant one good lung and the survival rate is just the same? I never knew you could live with just one lung!
If you are having trouble stopping smoking:
