How do you get on the lung transplant list and how do you get the lungs?

Question by Kookie: How do you get on the lung transplant list and how do you get the lungs?
I am 17 and my father has Emphysema I want to know what can he do to get on the lung transplant list as soon as possible because the medication for emphysema cause damage to the kidneys, heart and other organs. Which obviously lowers his chance to get the lungs. He has stopped smoking cold turkey. Please be as detailed and simple as possible I know that is a contradiction but remember I am 17 and just want to help my dad see my littlest brothers graduation.

Best answer:

Answer by jaimeismine3
I am sorry to hear about your fathers condition. To get a lung transplant he must be in the last stages of emphysema or COPD. Some risks include your father’s body rejecting this donor’s lung. Sometimes doctors do a heart transplant with the 2 lungs depending on each patient.
You will need to carry a cell phone so when a lung becomes available they can reach u ASAP. . Donors are matched carefully for size, tissue type, and some other factors.Sometimes a healthy family member can donate a lung if you only need a single transplant. The stay in the hospital is about a week recovery time…and the surgery itself takes 4-6 hours for 1 lung or 6+ for both. Unfortunately you can not sign up for a lung online. Your father needs to be referred by his doctor. Surgery is not always the best option. Medication can help- as well as modifications of health habits. It is great that he has stopped smoking.
