Pre Double Lung Transplant
I will be 62 this summer. I was diagnosed 2 years ago with COPD. It happened in a blink of an eye. I went into afib. Long story short my heart is good but sent me to critical care pulmonary. Was informed I needed double lung transplant.
Needless to say at first I thought I was given a death sentence. I am on oxygen, my life has totally changed. Can not take breathing meds as it sends me into afib. I consider myself blessed as I am not in pain. I tell myself I am not sick just my lungs are.
I have been so lucky only one hospital stay. I get tested every 6 months and was just informed it was time to go on the list. I have another appointment this month. I pray for everyone with this disease, I also ask for prayers. (Yes was ex smoker, but was also told it was hereditary and environment.) Stay positive, find the good in every day!!!
Have you taken our COPD In America survey yey?
