  • Hello all !
    I would be gald to share any thing I've learned and experienced about my heart and liver transplants over the past 8 years. Please check out my profile for details.
    All the best my friends !
  • I am a Heart Transplant that will be 4 years old on Jan 28, 2013! I have been with this site since 2006 when it was Transplant Buddy's. It has kept me going through all the good times and the bad. If you are just joining us Welcome. You will find we are like family here.

  • In August I learned that I will need a heart/liver transplant. I have tricuspid atresia and have always known I would need a heart transplant but we thought it would be much farther down the line so learning that I need both and I am 24 was a bit of a shock. I am so happy to find others who have gone through or are going through the same thing

  •    if your thinking about U of Miami (not Michigan) I had my liver tx there 5yrs ago! they are the best kept secret in America!  not the newest hospital, but the best!    

  • HI guys, I'm new here.

    I, myself, am not the transplant recipient, but my 13 year old brother is in the consulting process for both a heart and liver at this time. Originally my family was planning on doing Children's hospital in Detroit but I guess they said that because his liver is bad as well they are unable to do the operation. So now my parents are looking into U of M health systems and Cleavland Clinic.

  • It would be my guess that Religion and Social Acceptance would be both hard for some folks. I get weird reads from some family members and wonder what it will be like after my transplant surgery. I wish you the best and hopefully they will come to grips with the reality of life over individual opinions.
  • Hi all,

    I'm on waiting list for new liver and have been cleared through health workups. Located in Michigan and attending U of M Medical center for my transplant. Best of luck to us all !

  • Hi Everyone! I don't know how often I can come around & post with so much going on in my life right now. Besides Transplant Buddies & Facebook, I'm helping my dad with research for his new book, and on Feb. 1st I'll be starting school yet again. Even photography is taking a back seat on my list of things to do. Can't miss going to movies, though! Avatar rocks!! Love, Kelli
  • My doctor asked me about a live donor, but with my older brothers its unlikely they are healthy enough. Two of my kids are adopted and the other two are in the middle of raising their families, so I'm reluctant to ask.
    I'm not closing any doors, but faith in God and trust with my doctors just may allow me to be writing as a transplanted liver patient in recovery.
  • I'll be 58 soon and have been on the list for a liver about 2 yrs now. The bad part is having to get a big # on the MELD score. It means getting sicker and reduces a quick recovery. On the plus side, I've come to appreciate the little things that get past us during our busy lives.

A combined heart and liver transplant is very rare and I have been searching for other recipients for some time. Please feel free to join if you are waiting or received a heart and liver transplant.
