  • HiBill

    Long time no hear!

  • i mean what caused you to get a SINGLE lung transplant.
  • Hi bill,

     

    thank you..and i don't quite understand what is was that you to cause you to get a double lung transplant...im sure as you read i had broncular pulmonary displeasia(sp) also known as BPD. its similar to Cystic Fibrosis but not quite the same. Since feb 2011, i've been in and out of the hospital for constant rejection and infection. The rejection seems to re curing over and over again. The doctors have been running test and think that one of my anti rejection medications(celcept) is being absorbed by my body and isn't working properly. So they are talking about me possibly having to get a second double lung transplant because i haven't improved and i'm needing more oxygen than when all this originally started. 

  • Dear Bill, I am very happy to go through your message. Well, i live in Bhutan(known as The Lanf of Thunder Dragon, The last Shangri_La). That picture was actually taken in Thailand when i went for training. Photography?? its my hobby actually. I love taking photographs of anything that comes on my way but since 3 months, i lost my camera.It was my sad moment.
    By the way what u do there bill?
    You know, today we finished drafting the proposal which we will soon put to the government for the certification. I am trying to form Bhutan Kidney Foundation here in the country, Its been my dream project to help the needy patients. I am apparently working as Manager for a local youth center here in the capital.
    Hope to hear from you. Best regards.
