I qualify for heart and lung transplant but due to my advanced liver failure from the PAH, I can't have any kind of surgery. Not even minor procedure due to risk of bleeding to death. My old cardiologist waited too long to send me to specialist.

I was a candidate for a bi-lateral transplant but they won't do it cause of other health issues but I have seen a video of the whole procedure.

Two people in my schleroderma support group have had double lung transplants.

One person was depressed with the pain and medical care. A year later, he regrets it. The only positive that I heard is being able to take a deep breath.

Another person has blossomed. She never said a peep about recovery and only talked of the freedom without tubing. She moved to Arizona shortly after so now I mostly see her on facebook.

I did alot of research on the matter and decided I just don't wanna go thru with it cause there's aloy involved and in my case they're not positive it'll even work or for how long.
