Good morning everyone. My name is carol. I am usually in the Lupus group. I hope you don't mind my guestion but I thought if anyone would know it would be you.
Ok so I need a lung transplant. I may have up to two years if the pulm therapy works less if not. Anyway I'm 51 years old and one of the questions on the evaluation was Would I take a lung from someone who had hepatitis? The cause of death could have been from a car crash or anything. The dr. has given me my first shot for hep A and hep B. He said that with the series of shots it would be next to impossible for me to contract hepatitis. I hope this question doesn't upset anyone. I am an organ donor and if I don't make it I hope my organs will help someone else.
So the question is, knowing when you guys know would you agree to take the lung or not?
Thank you for your information and may God bless.
