    Doctors save woman's life by removing her lungs

    This sounds like it could be an exciting new option for people waiting for donor lungs: http://globalnews.ca/news/3204018/do...ing-her-lungs/

    Sounds wonderful for desperate situations but of course not all lung recipients would need to have their own lungs removed and wait for donor lungs.

    I saw this story going around on Facebook. I can't imagine how incredibly scary it was to be in that situation. If patients get to that point it's definitely a do or die moment. Might as well go for it!

    That's amazing, I didn't even realize they had the ability to do that! I agree that must be a very scary situation for those whose condition gets that bad!
