How long can someone with a lung transplant live?

Depends

the national average survival at one year is about 84% and at 3 years about 71%. that does not mean that you cannot live longer. we have a patient alive at 20 years after lung transplantation. but that is the exception... many things affect survival after lung transplantation. some of those things we can control, others we cannot...

Dr. Craig A. Brown answered:

I have emphysema. How long do you live on a vent if you need a lung transplant?

Lung transplant

Emphysema
You don't necessarily need to be on a vent if you need a lung transplant. Patients typically placed on a transplant list have severe emphysema and are 65 or younger. They cannot be smoking and other medical problems need to be minimal. Patients on prolonged mechanical ventilation are quite advanced and may not be considered candidates for transplants if the primary pulmonary issue is emphysema.

Ive had COPD for 8 years now how long can a person live haveing this lung disease?

Difficult

Chest-lung
It is very difficult to give a prognosis in COPD. Some patients with very low levels of lung function (FEV1) can live for many years. Low activity levels seem to be associated with a worse prognosis

How long can someone expect to live with emphysema lung disease without treatment?

Depends on how bad

Emphysema
That depends a lot on how severe the emphysema is, whether you are still smoking, whether you have symptoms of shortness of breath or coughing or wheezing, etc. Some people do just fine without treatment. Others, depending on the above factors, definitely need treatment. There are great treatments for emphysema, and they can help you feel better and breathe better.

How long are you out of work after a heart and lung transplant?

Hard to be precise

Heart
The question has a lot of contingencies based on the overall health of the recipient, the type of employment, the age of the recipient, any rejection, etc. In general it takes 1-2 months to stabilize and recover after a thoracic organ transplant., and considerations about return to work can begin after that approximate time.

My uncle is 72, has ephysema, no longer smokes, & needs a lung transplant, but his health is too poor to survive surgery. What is his life expectancy?

Unknown.

Lung_ct
At 72 even in better health, he is probably not a candidate for a lung transplantation. Depending on the severity of the emphysema, he may be a candidate for lung volume reduction surgery although this is not recommended in patients with severe disease. Medications are recommended and should be continued. No one can actually predict life expectancy with COPD. Lack of smoking, good nutrition.

How long does a standard single lung transplant surgery take??

Lung Transplant

Lungs
Having a lung transplantation involves a commitment to taking medications and management of possible infection and rejection episodes. The surgery itself may take a few hours, but then there is a recovery time, and close follow up visits with your transplant specialist.
