to ask about lung transplantation for an ild patient

Posted by @rahul, Jul 5, 2011

sir i would wish to enquire about lung transplantation for my grandmother aged 68 . She is an ild patient and her condition is deteriorating day by day . I had asked a doctor about lung transplantation from our native country india and he told me that we should consult at mayo hospital. Sir kindly guide us because even after trying our level best the doctor says that she would not survive more than six months.
