Transplant Rejection

“Rejection” is a word that someone who has had a lung transplant never wants to hear. It sounds scary — and it can be — because you want your body to accept your new lung(s) completely. When you hear the word “rejection,” you know that your body is having a problem accepting your new lung(s) as its own. Gaining an understanding of acute and chronic rejection will allow you to have an informed discussion with your doctor about treatment options.

The Lung Transplant Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
