"Stephanie, Thank you for sharing your story. It seems we only hear about the successful transplants and not the other ones. I donated a kidney exactly one year ago to my stepfather and he rejected within 3 months. They used OKT3 to treat it which…"

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
