I would sure like to ask a few questions to a lung transplant survivor. Anyone?

Hi OldmaninNeb! I'm a lung transplant survivor -- I have cystic fibrosis. I dealt with respiratory issues all of my life. Around 1995, I hit a wall and that was my road to being listed for lung transplant. I was listed in Sept 1997. I received my new lungs in April, 2000. (The listing system and wait was different then - it changed in 2005...) I was 39 when I was transplanted. I've had my lungs for 13 years next month.

I live in Chicago and was transplanted at Loyola. I'm currently followed at University of Chicago. I would be happy to try to answer a few questions. My email address is BreathinSteven@gmail.com I have a website with some of our story at http://www.ClimbingForKari.org
Take care... Steve
