I was release from OSU Tuesday evening. I spent the past 2 weeks in the hospital for rejection and ended up taking 10 out of the 14 ATG treatment. I was having to many side effect to continue with the other 4 days. The try to do a biopsy on my pancreas but only the fatty tissue around it. I was sent home on steroids and a bunch of other meds and along with the doctor changing my anti rejection. My pancreas is not working 100% right now it's had so much go on with it in the past month. I've also had to start taking a pill for my sugar, checking my sugar again, and watch what I eat. I never thought I would spend my 1 year anniversary in rejection. The way my transplant doctors talk they've been watching my slide into rejection for a little over a month. If my pancreas isn't damage I will have surgery this summer to take my pancreas from bladder to my bowel because my main problem right now. The said if they did surgery now it would my pancreas in shock. I've also told my doctor if my pancreas fails I want to go back on the list for another pancreas transplant. I couldn't believe that today was Thanksgiving because I've spent about a month in the hospital give or take couple days. But I have so much to be Thankful for. 

 

I want to to Thank Gary and Wanda for me being there for me when I was starting to show sign of rejection they talk to my on skype till one of my parents got home.

Morgan,

Thinking of you  as you  recover  from this  scary  rejection  episode.

I  pray  your  Panc   didn't  suffer  too  much  damage  so they  can  do  the  planned  surgery.

 

I  too had  a  scary  experience on   my  anniversary.           On  my  anniversary   (  Wed  nov 9)  I  did  my  normal  labs.             Coordinator  called  to  tell me  my  amylase  and  lipase  were  elevated.   I  was  instructed  to   repeat  labs  on  Mon   unless  I  started having   symptoms.     Numbers  were  worse,  while  sugars  remained  great,  I  was  asymptomatic.            I  was  told  to   such  high  numbers  can  be  causes  by  constipation  or  diarrhea.        I  was  instructed  to  drink  Mag  CItrate  and  repeat  labs  on  We.                  Numbers  came  back  normal.            The  following  Wed  numbers  were  even  better.

 

Sending  prayers  for  a  speedy  recovery. 

(((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))))))))))

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
