Went to the doctor for what I thought was a strained muscle, and was told I may have arterial necrosis. I'm scheduled for an mri. My primary doc was rather tight lipped about what it was and all I…Continue

About Me: Please use this space to tell the community about you and your unique experience with transplantation:
I had a double lung txp. as a last resort to treat pph. Looking back, I think I always knew I was heading in that direction. I have been so blessed because I had a quick diagnosis, doctors who sent me to the best hospital in the world and a family that put aside terrible grief and gave the gift of life. I've been in pretty good health since.

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

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
