so ive been thinking of the future, im seventeen and starting to worry about lung transplant that i will have to have. my mom says in order to live a long life like everyone else, i will have to have a double lung transplant. i saw a statistic saying after surgery 80% come out alive. then after 5 years 50% live. that freaks me out. In about 20 years, will CF be cured? In about 20 years what will the statistics look like? i will be 40 almost by then, and guessing i will need one by then. By the time that is which is 20 years or so, will everyone survive the surgery itself and will almost every live a normal lifespan? im very worried.
