Juanita Commodore, I'm glad you are okay for the Donor List. I hope you won't have to wait too long for a new set of lungs and that all will go well. Lifting you up.
My doctor says we are on the last medication and then we are going to look at a heart and lung transplant also, no sure what i am more scared of the transplant or dying
Thank you for that. I actually have not yet made the list YET
The request for my transplant has been sent to my incurance provider here in Las Vegas since they do not do transplants here in Nevada they are reviewing my request to see if they will grant me the next phase which is going to CA. Cedar Siani hospital in Los Angeles then from there test me to see if i qualify or not ....at least my foots in the door but still means nothing for sure . i havent even fully processed the transplant suggestion from Drs yet .
I will be having a double lungs transplant just got finish with all the required testing and Team approve me for the Donor List.
NicholeFakhouri> Try not to worry about the biopsy. I had the same symptoms you are having several years ago. Mine came back cancer, but it was very early. They were able to do a hysterectomy and I didn't need any further treatment. It could also be a hundred other things that won't require drastic treatment. Prayers are going up for you and I hope it all comes out okay.
