help! Lung transplant & LC!!!


Recommended Posts


I am normally on here for my mom butI am here for a friend today.

Someone I know just had a double lung transplant. What they thought was pneumonia on all of the pre-op scan was really LC. They did the transplant and took some lymph nodes. The ones in the old lungs tested positive but the ones taken from outside the lungs were negative. She was staged at IIB.

Can anyone help? What can be done? She is at a great medical center getting great care but all resources are necessary!!

Sounds like your friend is dealing with an awful lot. There may not be a lot of information or experience about people who've had both lungs transplanted and get diagnosed with lung cancer at the same time. I think you're going to have to rely on her medical team for information.

Sending you and your friend all the caring thoughts and strength I can.
