Share - which illness led up to you needing a transplant?

I went in for mitral valve repair to fix prolapse on 11/11/13, post-op my heart stopped working unexpectedly for no reason. I was transferred and had ECMO and BIVAD treatment and was sedated for about 3-4 weeks. They tried seeing if my heart would heal but I was put on the list Boxing Day. I had three false alarms before I received my transplant.


Which Organ(s) did you receive? If you are on the waiting list, please share.

Received a new heart 10/01/2014
