Where did you hear about Transplant Friends?
I was researching Tacrolimus information for an article I'm writing when I stumbled across you guys by accident. I signed up straight away. Man, this sounds right up my street!
Are You Male or Female?
Share - which illness led up to you needing a transplant?
Damaged liver. Too much regular drinking, then ignoring the symptoms
Which Organ(s) did you receive? If you are on the waiting list, please share.
Drugs, vitamins, favorite foods
Advagraf, CellCept. Favorite food? Everything! (I live in France, so...) Big fan of a good curry - love to cook!
How many years have you had your Transplant for?
I am Interested in Transplant Friends because...
Off the top of my head, I'd say the contact with like-minded people. The idea of sharing some of the ''adventure'' sounds good. Also, I hope I have something to contribute - I'd say I'm pretty well informed and very positive about it all. Hopefully could be of help (can also speak French, it it helps) I'm Irish, but that probably doesn't help much!
Which Transplant Center has or will perform your life saving surgery?
Hôpital Henri Mondor, Créteil, Paris France
Share how your transplant experience changed your life?
Running out of internet time here - too long to say it all. In a nutshell, then: It made me realize the value of being alive. Even the miserable bits are just wonderful, in a way. I mean - ALIVE!
Share whatever information you want us to know about you
In terms of contribution, I write, I'm a qualified engineer and know my way around problem solving. I have so many things to say, advice to give and more importantly, receive.
Share your interests and hobbies
Here's a copy/paste from my CV: Rugby, Golf, Skiing, Swimming (Qualified Lifeguard), Martial Arts, Journalism, Writing, Science, Ecology, Alternative Energy Sources. Currently working on a bilingual workshop project to educate and open young children's minds through science, particularly by recycling old motors and electronic devices to build educational toys, work-saving tools and different forms of electrical transport.
