Feeding tubes not only save lives, but allow hundreds of thousands of North Americans (and many others elsewhere) to live their lives. I invite you to ask me about my tube.
Tube feeding, also known as home enteral nutrition (HEN), is a life-saving therapy for people who for various reasons cannot obtain adequate nutrition orally. Common reasons for a feeding tube include severe food allergies, swallowing disorders, gastroparesis, cancer, mitochondrial disease, short bowel…Continue
Hi,I am glad I found this site. I hope that I may be of service to others who have received or are about to face this life changing gift. I can even advise care givers to a degree. You'll find me open to any discussion so please feel free to contact me. I got my new liver just over a year ago. I've healed very well and other than Prograf side effects, I'm doing very well. My surgeon even rated me " best in show" or something like that. I consider the minor hair loss, repeated vision…Continue

Hi guys, as I'm sure you've guessed, I'm pretty new here. I'm new to the whole idea of transplants in general. Growing up, I knew my mother had HEP C, but I never realized how bad it was. She always seemed fine. Now that I'm older, and so is she, her liver is starting to0 get worse. She has been diagnosed with stage 4 Liver Disease, HEP C, and Cirrhosis. Our blood types match. I am 23 and healthy. Though I keep reading about how I need to be 'big enough' to donate which has me worried. I weigh…Continue
I have been informed by my wife's insurance BCBS FedBlue, that they will no longer cover my Prograf if it is filled by our local pharmacy. FedBlue will force me to use CVS mail order to continue coverage. Has anyone experienced a similar situation? Continue
I think that it is important to send email messages about your health insurance concerns to your governor, congressmen and senators. We all have unique challenges in this area and I think that people in government need to know what they are. I sent this letter to all of the above. Medicaid%20Letter.docxContinue

Thanks, rContinue
I am back in hospital 3 months after liver transplant with blockage in my bile ducts. Earlier I had had a stent inserted because of the narrowing of the veins. Anyone else had similar issues and what were your outcomes?
Our daughter who just turned 20 was diagnosed with Wilson’s Disease at the age of 5. When she was 17 years old she wasn’t feeling well and was taken to see specialists. We live in a rural area 2 hours away from the hospital. After consulting with the pediatric specialists at the children’s hospital, the decision was made to explore the possibility of transplant in the future. We were referred to the adult unit because there is no hospital in our state that handles pediatric liver transplants,…Continue
