I did a search and it appears that very few people have had a lobectomy - is it not common? For those of you who have had one, what research did you do or have available that helped you make your decision? Are you glad you had the lobectomy? Is there anyone with CF who decided not to have it? For those of you who have had transplants was a lobectomy an option first? My SIL and husband are having to make a decision about a lobectomy for their 6 year old daughter with CFRD and any input would be appreciated.

I was offered a lobectomy or transplant. I chose the transplant only for the reason that my pft's were to low as it was. Taking a part of my lung would have made it worse. but since my Transplant I feel better than I've ever felt.

pour on the fat and hope for the best
