My name is Bill Helms and I have been given credit for creating a Group for lung transplant persons and their care givers. I am not computer gifted, so mistakes by me will simply be mistakes, ok? (ha)
I am a single lung, left side, transplantee as of June 22, 2010, and when I found this web site I so enjoyed reading blogs of others, but then realized I couldn't tell who had what transplanted.
I just want to meet other lung transplant folks via this means, find out the achievments/disappointments, physical and mental issues and helpful hints. So, let's get started!!
My biggest problem is diabetis 2. I am so tired of "sticking" myself 4 to 5 times daily. Dieting is so much fun that I practice violating diet matters!
Another problem is my memory. I don't believe it was re-connected when the new lung was installed. Even with post-it notes in pocket, I can't remember I even brought the notes. In the grocery store earlier this afternoon, my cell phone was in my pocket and I was asking a lady if she was going to answer her cell phone (she didn't have one) and then I couldn't remember where I put my phone. Sounds like a good comedy show for TV doesn't it.
Enough of me, let's hear from you folks. Thanks for joining this web.
