Hopefully I can fill you in soon. I'm going thru evaluation and with the Dr's blessing I will be listed very soon. If you have the ability to get a xplant then go for it....in my case and maybe yours, this is probably the only option that will allow you to live. In my case I won't see christmas without xplant and have just realized ther are people around me that want me to live.
At 54 you chances of coming thru this and living with new "air bags" seems pretty good if your health is maintained..Good luck. I'll get back to you as soon as my bags are installed.
