My Journey After Lung Transplant
Hello Forum Member Friends:
I had single lung transplant in February 2020 at the University of Maryland Medical Center after being rejected by Inova Fairfax Hospital.
The journey since then has been made possible due to the excellent care I received from the doctors and health care staff at the university and God’s grace. I owe my life to them. These dedicated individuals go out of the way to ensure the wellbeing of all patients. One doctor during the height of Covid scare came and saw me at my home to ensure my recovery was progressing well. After more than two years and 8 months now, I do everything albeit a little slowly. I am in my mid 70’s and I follow their instructions to the letter. No uncooked foods, no alcohol(which I never consumed anyway), no buffets anywhere, and disciplined living has immensely helped. I have taken one two hour flight to Florida always masked up and a few short trips by car. We have been very selective about going to restaurants. Now we are preparing to take a transcontinental trip next month with all the precautions. Anybody has any tips?
If I can be of any help giving more information, I will happy to provide. Please ask.
