I'm 49, had a double lung tx. I haven't been given the okay to return to work. It will be six months Nov. 4. I'm in no hurry but I do need the insurance. Rachel M.Continue

Does anyone know (or have a guess) what percentage of transplant survivors work? I'm sure it's different by tx type.
I have a general question. I was advised at my transplant clinic to avoid physical contact with strangers such as hand shaking or embracing. How do you decline an offer of a handshake courteously without appearing rude? In my former company our partners were from France and they all give the 3-lisses and embrace when meeting. If I go back (not too likely but a posibility) any recommendations on how to handle this gracefully.
well my job was'nt dissolved but I would have to start back over and relocate a lot and am just not willing to do that, so I guess I need to look at least and see what is out there , not much am sure ..
In my case, I expected to return to work after a heart tx. I had a slight setback after about 6 months, but still expected to recover and return to work. Other health issues brought on by my declining heart health including diabetes and peripheral neuropathy which limits my mobility and makes driving difficult and somewhat dangerous. In the meantime my company dissolved my job and there wasn't an other option for me. I qualified for SSDI and started receiving my pension. So far I have food on the table and a roof over my head. Just hoping things don't take a turn for the worse. I have done some volunteering, but what business wants to take a chance on a person that can't compete with the typical healthy, strong, young individual today? I would like to think that I could be of some benefit to an organization with 30+ years of experience, but the jobs just don't seem to be there.
good question, my txpnlt cntr says that 30 % of the heart tx patients will re-turn to work, And I have been told that this is going to happen to me, now what do I do for work ? am sure there will be restrictions .. Guess I need to do some more research on this .. will post again with answers ..
