Are you against heart and lung transplants for sick CF people?

In brief: Heart/lung transplan

Actually no, but it is important to realize that they do come with some issues.
The transplant may get rid of the CF issues in those areas, but the individual still has CF and that will affect other organs. Also, the medicines for immune suppression necessary after a transplant have their own risks, such as an increased risk of infection.
