Regardless of the diagnosis you are still a candidate for the transplant, correct? I am not sure how this misdiagnosis harmed you in any way. I am interested however, to know if you are a smoker since the majority of COPD/emphysema is caused by smoking. I don't know how long you have smoked but you may want to contact a tobacco lawyer to see if you have a claim.



I have smoked for about 30 yrs just after joining the Army.


Not sure what your question is. Are you disputing the new diagnosis? Are you now off the transplant list?
