Have no idea if anyone even remembers me or follows my posts on here since I have been absent for sooooo long! Really not sure where I have been or why I have not posted in so long! I must say that all is going well as far as my miraculous transplants go! My cornea transplant still gives me a beautiful view of the world after 9 years and my kidney/pancreas transplant, which turned 7 in July, is still giving me the renewed life I had never dreamed I would…Continue
According to Kidney Doctor, the rise is kidney cancer may have a strong correlation to the modern way of living. Meaning, alcohol drinking, being weight challenged, eating lots of red meat and smoking are habits which increase your risks of developing cancer. Nugget: Healthier lifestyle=Prevention.
We've just come back from Montego Bay, Jamaica where we spent the week at the Cornwall Regional Hospital making great progress in helping the local medical staff to develop a sustainable kidney transplant programme. At the moment the only option for renal failure patients on the island is a life time of dialysis; until now the idea of a kidney transplant has been out of the question. Jamaica has everything it needs to create a kidney transplant programme - hard working surgeons, hard working…Continue

Hello AllJust under three years I had a liver transplant due to cirrohossis and Hep C. I am back at work but seem to experience vomiting and diarrhoea if I have been exposed to chemicals of any sort. Understanding fertilser and blood and bone for gardens is a no no for me. My medical team cannot give me any answers and I am wondering if anybody has experienced the same symptoms. The episodes seem to last up to four to five hours at a time and leaves me very fatigued and wash out. Hoping…Continue
Hello to everyone,My name is Gene and I was transplanted almost 3 years ago. I suffered from liver failure as a result of Hep C. I am 59 years old now. I suffered a torn rotator cuff as a result of my positioning during my transplant and it took some time to recover from that. I did not have any surgery I simply learned to live with it. I also incurred steroid induced diabetes as a result of the transplant and now have a fair amount of neuropathy in my feet. I have found that I fatigue much…Continue

Hi,First post folks. I'll begin with quick background: My 15-year old daughter had a heart transplant 6 months ago after having severe dilated cardiomyopathy with left ventricular noncompaction (now known to be a result of a genetic mutation original to her). Anyway, transplant was at the highly acclaimed Columbia/NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital - to which we moved for waiting for the heart, transplant, and follow-up care. Now, 6 months after transplant, we moved back to our home. Our medical…Continue

Hi, My wife had a double lung transplant, 16 years ago this Sunday. At the age of 27, dying from CF, she was gifted life by the transplant team at MGH in Boston, and two non-related living donors. We've been together for 8 years and I play both roles of husband and caregiver.Although her sweet 16 "Lungaversary" is Sunday, on Monday she goes for a major surgery (not pulmonary related). I sure am nervous. I've witnessed her resilience, self efficacy and recovery from multiple pneumonias,…Continue

Hello All! I am Suzanne and am medically "well" since the liver transplant in February 2010. I so can relate to the majority of everyone's issues post transplant and most likely medication related side effects. Lately my biggest problem has been my sore mouth tissue - as my dentist call it "dry tissue". This is the absolute worst it has ever been! I have the liquid Nystatin for the thrush but it seems to not be helping at all. Started using coconut oil (since the pulled all my teeth…Continue
I've been working out with weights at the gym. I asked my clinic if I can take Whey Protein post workout. They gave me the OK to take it. But I was just wondering if anybody else on here take Whey Protein post workout and if it changed their medication lvl's (ie. cyclosporine or cellcept). Continue
