I got my transplant at St. Josephs Hospital in Dunwoody, Ga. The transplant team was amazing I always made them smile when I come in. I love my life but things are starting to go bad yet again.... I am 23 and I have a 35 year old heart. My LAD is 80% blocked and I will be having a stint put in soon.... I also was told because of the medications that I am on Myself and my Fiance should not have children because of the risk for birth defects AND the risk of me and the baby getting hurt from birth defects..... All I have been thinking about since I got my transplant was having a family and a normal life as possible....
Which Transplant Medication(s) Do You Take?
All of the medications that I am on are: Prograf, Myfortic, Lisinopril, Bactrum, Lipator, isosorbide. Fun stuff huh .....
What Do You Do For a Living? What Are Your Passions, Hobbies, Passtimes, Dreams and Goals for the Future?
