My brother had his first bronchoscopy last Friday. Most lung transplant patients have this procedure 1 month after transplant. Bobby had to wait for 2 months based on his heart surgery along with transplant. This is a biopsy of the new lung to see if there is any infection or rejection. Doctor seemed happy with the procedure, now just waiting on results. Your continued support and prayers are greatly appreciated!
