In brief: Tough to say

Nicholas, the survival of the lung/kidney transplant is going to be driven by the survival of the lung transplant.
But, the overall survival is probably lower than if you only needed a lung transplant, just because of the underlying process causing the need for a renal transplant in addition of the lung transplant.
