Hello Selma:

I am also a single lung tx.  A right.  Can you tell me why you are so successful with your lung going on 20 years?  I am 58 this year and will hit my 3rd anniversary on April 12th.  

Have you talked to your transplant team about a re-transplant?  You are an inspiration to me.  My goal is to make 20 years on this lung.  I was diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis so my native left lung is only producing about 5% compared to 95% by my new lung.   

Drop me a note if you get time.

Sincerely

Ken Carrell

Selma:
I just want to thank you for the gift of the pink ribbon; it means so much to me. Thank you for being my new friend and look forward to getting to know you better. FYI: I had my first kidney transplant in 1972 and back then the life expectancy was 8 years; I had that kidney for over 34 years and recieved my second on 2-14-09 from my hero husband. I have lived with a transplanted kidney for 37 years of my life on 11/6/09. I have been blessed and also gave birth to our fabulous sons. The quarter century club is for members who have had an organ transplant for 25 years or more so you might look there and the president of the club is George Franklin and he might be able to tell you the longest Lung recipient that he know. Thank you again for the ribbon. Bless you and yours and please keep in touch.
Karen

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?

Having a single Peg of Whiskey after liver transplant, will it kill me?

I underwent a liver transplant 4 years ago due to acute liver failure, My medications have reduced to just 1 mg of Prograf twice a day. Since the past 2 years I started travelling and living in various countries. Currently I am in Bogota, Colombia. I know this could have been severely fatal for me but I tried for the first time in my life Cocaine,LSD and Marijuana here, which I had never done in my life. For a small period of time I almost got addicted to Coke, when I pulled my self together and stopped. Now my basic question is, while the past 4 years there were 3 incidents where I accidentally consumed alcohol in a very low quantity, such as a drink had alcohol and due to a language change I wasn't aware of it till I had gone half way through, the other time I took an ice cream which was made with alcohol and I wasn't aware of that. So if on the new year I consume a single shot of Blue Label Whiskey will that be like committing sucide or will my body be able to bear it? I have…See More
