Liver Transplants

This is a group for all people who have had liver transplants. Feel free to say how long you have been a recipient and what medication you are on. Some doctors hope to have their patients off all medications, any thoughts?

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

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
