I haven't posted since this started but still in rejection. September 11th, it will be 3 months since this started. It kind of was getting better so doc lowered prednisone to 15mg and let me go a month till next labs. I had those labs August 17th and they went up, a lot. He raised my Prednisone to 40mg for 7 days, 30mg for another 7 days. I am almost done with the 30mg and it will go back to 20mg. I am getting labs again Thursday. I've pretty much been getting labs every two weeks since this…Continue
My niece has been approved for a kidney transplant at Cedar's Sinai in LA but hasn't found an affordable place to stay for the three months following the transplant. Does anyone know of a place or have a suggestion on how to find a place. Her social worker did give her a list of hotels/motels but they are out of her price range. She is doing some fund raising to help cover expenses. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi,My name is Amber. I am a liver transplant recipient 4 years out. I am 28 years old and I am in school for nursing.

I had complications a month post surgery resulting in a 3 month stay at the hospital, the loss of my large intestine, and mental and emotional problems. I am in my second semester in school, I am in the pre-nursing program and hope to be accepted into the nursing sequence next…Continue

Hey everyone, it has been a long time since I posted. I hope everyone is well in health and life.One of my biggest issues now that I'm 8 years post-transplant is weight loss, and sleeping. I think one of my downfalls while recovering from my transplant was that I sunk into depression and began taking anti-depressants which also helped with my anxiety.I've read that these type of medications can cause weight gain, and sleep problems. I spoke to my Doctor about it, but he feels that I should…Continue

I had my liver transplant in November 2012. I know the Doctors had me go through a heart test approximately 6 months prior to the transplant. The Heart test was good. I always had difficulty breathing, fatique etc. after the transplant. I had to give up everything that involved exercise. The Doctors acted like this was normal and never did any further tests. I was recently diagnosed with Pulmonary Hypertension (No cure) and Pulmonary Fibrosis from Doctors at another Hospital. Has anyone else…Continue

Lung transplant, my story.Before I begin, I would first like to thank the many people, without whom this may have never happened. To the doctors and nurses and everyone else at Johns Hopkins who have been absolutely amazing. To countless friends and relatives, I can't begin to name them all or to thank them all personally for all of their support and prayer. I feel that everyone has gone through this together with me, and John as well. To my immediate family, my sons and daughter-in-law who…Continue
