  • Hey Tim! I saw that you got listed! Great! How are things??? Hope things are going good for you. 

  • Nice to know that you got accepted on the waiting list for your transplant. Keep in shape and good luck. I read on your site that you like shooting well shooting was my favorite sport. I have been adjusting rifles for about 35 yrs. and made many competitions. I also loved to shoot the bow and arrow. After my transplant I changed my sport to golfing, bicycle, and some hunting.  Take care...

  • Tim, Good to hear you completed your pre testing and are already listed. I'm wishing the very best for you and your family. Take care and stay well. Judy L.
  • Good to hear Tim and good luck.  Soon u'll be riding this.


  • Hi Tim.  It's entirely natural to have a fear of the unknown so don't sweat it.  Concentrate on staying as fit as possible.  That is what determines how well the operation goes and how long the recovery takes.  When exercising don't hesitate to turn up the oxygen to help and no need to exercise hard just keep it slow and steady, rest as often as you need to.

    I was diagnosed with IPF in 2008 and had my bi-lateral in January of 2009.  I also had a very determined bug kicking my butt and went downhill rapidly.

    There is life after transplant, I went back to work 35 days after the operation and haven't looked back.  There will be some bumps along the way, just take them as they come and move forward ... always move forward.

    Now, let the journey begin and hang on for a wild ride. 

  • Please don't be afraid! I know...easier said than done. I had a heart tx but from this and other sites on FB there are many successful double lung  transplants. Check out Eric Hansen.com (and on FB)  an awesome singer/songwriter now in full voice after his lung tx. And being young is in your favor.  Those little guys need you!!!!

  • I am glad that you found us!

  • Thanks for having me!
  • Welcome Tim to TransplantFriends!  I hope we can ease some of your fears.
