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.

"The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,

And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep." Robert Frost

"Hi, I'm two years out for Liver TP. Went into rejection after 3rd week. They had me on 4gm of Tacrolimus X 3. for a year, then 5mg X 2, and down to 2 x 2. My Tac level was 3.7 last test. Up from 3. They want you between 8 and 18. I was also on…"
