I have Cystic Fibrosis and this is my experience of getting a lung transplant.

Changeover day at 9 Blossom Street
Not going to write much this evening. Not a great deal to say but Will continues to do ok. He did two sessions on the exercise bike today and continued the perambulations, definitely upping the speed since he first started post-op. Ellie came up to see him, and my parents both dropped in as today was Vicky-sitting changeover day. My dad is just back from a three week holiday in South Africa and has come to take over, while my mum goes back to work. She has done a heroic job of cooking for me, tackling long overdue tasks like defrosting the freezer and cleaning the oven, and embracing missions to go and buy Will various permutations of pyjamas. Planning to pop into work tomorrow, just for the morning, to touch base and check there are no population forecasting emergencies.
I am a 35 year old CFer married to Vicky and living in Cambridge, UK. I had a double lung transplant in October 2009. This blog follows our ups and downs through the pre- and post-transplant experience, as patient and partner.
