3 doctors agree
In brief: Averages
At one year 90 percent of CF patients are alive after lung transplant; the number falls to around 60% at 5 years and 10-15% at 10 years.
Double lung transplant patients tend to do better than single lung transplant recipients (probably because they have more reserve if they develop rejection).

In brief: New Drugs
With the development of new immunosuppressive drugs and regimens to manage rejection, doctors are hopeful that life expectancy may improve.
