Surgery

American Lung Association states "In pulmonary fibrosis, once the lung tissue becomes scarred, the damage cannot be reversed. Because of this, lung transplant (a surgical procedure that involves replacing one or both of your diseased lungs with healthy lungs) is a treatment option your doctor may suggest." Also the association provides information on the lung transplant evaluation process.

Lungs & You: "About Lung Transplants"

The Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation PF Treatment website page discusses the option of a Lung transplant. The information is about in the middle of the page.

When considering a lung transplant, the Care Partner is critical. 

Kevin Olson's friends Greg and Paul are part of his Care Partner team. They wrote stories on Kevin's Lung Transplant Journey.
