I am interested in lung transplant. I have COPD, emphazema asthma and broncitis. I was diagnosed 2 years ago. My older sister died four years ago of the same thing. She only lasted three years from the time of being diagnosed. I would just like to get my name on the transplant list somewhere in Canada, Toronto preferably. I can't seem to get my doctor to take me seriously. Can you please help me? I don't even know if it is in both lungs or just one but I do know that sometimes it feels like my chest is going to explode. I did smoke over a period of ten years but as a single mother back then I had worked in some very unhealthly(according to todays standards)factories breathing in degreasing agents(trichloraphoric ethelene) Please let me know what to do. Thank you so much. p.s. I am 64yrs. old
Have you seen a lung specialist yet? A pulmonologist?
I saw a man in Midland at the hospital and ha told me I would be on the inhaler Advair (?) for ever. He did a test with the blue inhaler and told me they did nothing. He said something about my inhaling was 44% and with the Advair it was up to 50%. That's it. Never heard back from my doctor and I'm with a new doctor and he told me to take 5mg. of singular at night.
Who is your doctor?
my dr. is Dr. mcInnis in Wasaga Beach Ontario. He is my new doctor and put me on singular.
I would ask for a referral to a large university hospital with a transplant center.or at least a referral to a pulmonologist.
would you know names of hospitals in the toronto area that specialize in this area that I can pursue in this matter.
Are you near a university hospital?
I don't know what that means. There's Toronto General but I don't know what you mean by a university hosp.
I would ask to see a pulmonologist at Toronto General.
