Team Prograf

This is for those of us who take Prograf as a main immune suppressive drug. We can discuss side effects, etc. Or, we can just keep a head count of how many in the community take Prograf.

Way to go Darlene:

Hang in there, it just keeps getting better and better.  You will have ups and downs, just follow the doctors orders and don't get too careless the first year.  By that I mean wear your mask, use your hand sanitizer, take your pills on time and stay active in your home even if its just walking or walking up and down stairs.  It took me a year and a half before I felt close to normal.  If you need to chat you can email me at kennethjude@comcast.net.

Keep your head up  

Ken Carrell

Vomiting and Diarrhoea after being exposed to chemicals

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 someone can give me some answers.Kind regardsFrankSee More

Working after Transplant

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 easier than I once did. My doctor has concluded that I have also suffered some cognitive impairment and as a result of my illness and I have been declared fully disabled. After a year of rehabilitation I returned to work part time delivering auto parts. I have been working for 18 months now. By federal law I can earn $1070/month and continue to receive disability. I find it difficult to live on my part time wages however I have determined that in order to justify going to work full time I would…See More
