I have done 10 000 miles in the last 5 weeks with bad lungs. I fly 1st class, with a POC, I take my own power wheelchair with me and have wipes and wear a mask I'm traveling back and forth from Portland Oregon to the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville Florida. 3 weeks for lung transplant evaluation and am currently in the hospital here having just completed iliac artery surgery today. All went well and now on to selection on Thursday I hope.
With care you can travel, my transplant team fully supports my traveling because they know it will fix my lung problems.

You get around,,that's wonderful. I'm happy your surgery went well. I also went for a lung transplant evaluation,, however I did not qualify. So your lungs do okay with the pressure from the flight? I'm sorry what is a POC?
Thanks for sharing and good luck with the lung transplant evaluation.
