Share whatever information you want us to know about you
41 yrs old. Had LVAD that clotted after 6wks and I then became the 6th total artificial heart transplant at UW in Seattle and PNW. Waited another 10 mo before real transplant. Horrible chronic pain and developed neuropathy for reasons unknown until I did my own research on my meds. 90 perc disabled and couldn't walk for 3 yrs. after my own research I've learned which meds I took that caused it and I hear to many people with the same issue and want to share what helped me. Had my transplant at 38yrs old. Died twice along the way
