I am sorry, I don't know anything about liver Tx I have had 2 kidneys txs..... but I had both of mine at Vanderbilt and I can say that they are one of the best places to be. I moved to Raleigh, NC and now go to Duke. I am happy here too. Trust your TX team, call and talk to your docs. Your doc should talk to you over the phone so you don't have to come in. Just call . They have invested a lot in you and they are there for you.
Thx so much! You take care and I'll keep you in my prayers.
I have not experienced fluid build up to any degree, I had a liver transplant in 2007. I do sometimes retain fluid if I do not watch my sodium intake, but my stomach does not get hard. Sounds like you have already called your transplant team and have gotten labs. I think you are on the right track.
Good luck and keep us posted.
Thanks so much, they just called and upped my prednisone from 2.5 mg to 10 mg daily.
They are going to call back about the fluids, but my white count is 2.6 and plateletts are 34, so as usual, it's not very good.
thanks a bunch to all and take care,
Well, they finally called back and as said before changed my prednisone from 2.5 mg to 10 mg daily.
When asked about the fluids, they blew me off saying they had no explanation and to wait till May 18 for checkup or go to GP.
Oh well, I tried. It's very frustrating.
Thanks to all who have responded trying to help out.
