    Liver Transplant before Lung Transplant?

    Has anyone had a liver transplant way before they needed a lung transplant? I'm curious as to how this works as I know liver and lungs need to come from same donor

    I know 2 people who had liver transplants. One a few years before she gotlungs, the other got her liver as a teen and now is undergoing a work up for lung transplant. It must be not necessary to get the organs from the same donor. Maybe related, we also know people who got lung transplant then needed a new kidney a few years later. I hope this helps.
