  • Awesomeness!

  • AWESOME AWESOME NEWS !!!   Congrats on your miracle !   here's to many many years to come with no issues !!

  • Congratulations on receiving a new liver! I am happy that you have been blessed with this gift too! I got a liver more than eleven years ago along with several other organs as part of a multivisceral transplant. I have not ever had any major episodes of rejection, so I feel very fortunate in that regard.  I have struggled with some digestive issues and some infections here and there likely associated with the lowered immune system, but my liver has remained healthy for the most part.  I hope that you will have great success with your transplant and that it will open up doors for you for a long time. I will be glad to answer questions too if I can be of any help to you. Best of wishes to you.

    Hugs,
    Bobbiejo

  • Hi Jacquie, I got my liver just over two years ago. I had some ups and some downs but now I have excellent health. I wish you all the best. Contact me if you have any questions. 

    • Thank you Willie, what kind of complications did you hav? Other than pain and several trips back to the hospital to look at a lab result or get some tests, I've spent a couple nights in the hospital but to help avoids infections they want me home!
      It would be nice talking to a double birthday survivor
      • Regarding my liver transplants. On my first transplant they saw that my liver did not get enough blood so they bypassed the blood flow which goes to my spleen and directed it to my liver. After a few hours my TX team was still not satisfied and then fitted an additional artificial vain to feed more blood to my liver. In a time frame of 36 hours from the first transplant I went 4 times back for surgery. After 3 days this new liver failed. Two days later I got my second liver transplant. (First liver 7th April 2015, second liver 11th April 2015). My TX teams said that my anatomy was changed completely to adapt for the new liver.
