BRIDGEWATER, N.S. – A Nova Scotia woman suffering from cystic fibrosis says she has a new lease on life following a double lung transplant.

Jessica Carver of New Germany says the genetic disorder had taken a toll on her lungs, pancreas and liver.

The 33-year-old had surgery last month at Toronto General Hospital.

Carver says she has regained her appetite and enjoyed New Year’s Eve at the hospital with friends and family.

Carver hopes to be back in her Ontario apartment by the end of the month to continue with her recovery.

If all goes well, she hopes to return to her home along Nova Scotia’s South Shore in March.
