About Me: Please use this space to tell the community about you and your unique experience with transplantation:
My transplant does not define who I am, but it has certainly helped to shape me into the person that I am. I have an even deeper appreciation for life, family, and friends. Although my life had great purpose and clarity before I became sick and received my heart, the experience reinforced everything that I believed in - how to live life, how to treat people, how to appreciate everything, and how to always think positively.

Surgery after transplant

I recently injured my hand and now have to have surgery on it to repair it. They are going to be putting me out for the surgery. Now grant it, I, on a regular basis go to my transplant center for different procedures(ie;allomap, biopsies, heart caths, etc) and feel completely at ease in doing so, it has been 4.5 years since my heart transplant, Yet I have found myself with a lot of anxiety going into this surgery, one that they are putting me under, two, it is not at my transplant center but at another hospital. It is really weird that i seem to have more anxiety concerning this surgery then I did about my transplant. The faith I have been granted affords me to have confidence in my eternal destiny to be with Christ and that is what/and has guided me through my entire transplant journey. Can anybody shed some light on their experience they have had with other surgeries following transplant. With a grateful heart, JeffSee More

My Acute Liver Failure was the result of Hepatitis C contracted during an emergency C-section in1978!

I lived with stage 4 (end stage) liver disease for 15 years. The fall of 2010 was the beginning of a rapid decline. I received a transplant in May of 2011. As you know a transplant gives you a new life but does not cure the hepatitis C, it begins its damage of your new liver immediately. Thanks to the incredible staff of the Mayo Clinic Liver Department and new drugs Solvaldi and Olysio I have been virus free for over 5 months and hope that my 6 month blood test will be still be negative. Interferon and ribovarin would show no virus and then a month or so it would rear it's ugly head. I had no side effects from the two new drugs. These drugs are very very expensive but I was fortunate that Mayo knew where to go for help with these two drugs whose combined costs is $58,000 per month for 3 months. $174,000.
