Was reading your story. I re live my 2 years prior to my Liver Transplant. I was so scared and lived alone and never had any warning when I would go into The Zone Of I Don't Know Who I Am Or What I Am Doing Can't Figure Out How To Call For Help...
That is the past!!! We are alive and well

"Wow I had to only to the biopsy for 6 months then they did the allomapping test. They now can tell if I have rejection thru blood work. Those are so uncomfortable! Prayers do her!! My transplant was in Nov 2013. Methodist Hospital in Houston Texas."

Cardiac biopsy - how often?

Hi,First post folks. I'll begin with quick background: My 15-year old daughter had a heart transplant 6 months ago after having severe dilated cardiomyopathy with left ventricular noncompaction (now known to be a result of a genetic mutation original to her). Anyway, transplant was at the highly acclaimed Columbia/NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital - to which we moved for waiting for the heart, transplant, and follow-up care. Now, 6 months after transplant, we moved back to our home. Our medical team has a different protocol for checking for organ rejection.Whereas NYP's protocol is cardiac biopsy every month for first year, every 2 months for second year, and every 3 months for third year, our hospital's protocol moves to every 3 months after 6 months, then every 6 months after a year and every year after 3. Bottom line- much fewer cardiac biopsies.I'm wondering if you know the different protocols in checking for solid organ rejection / heart - and how they differ from different medical…See More

Hello, I am new here

Hi, My wife had a double lung transplant, 16 years ago this Sunday. At the age of 27, dying from CF, she was gifted life by the transplant team at MGH in Boston, and two non-related living donors. We've been together for 8 years and I play both roles of husband and caregiver.Although her sweet 16 "Lungaversary" is Sunday, on Monday she goes for a major surgery (not pulmonary related). I sure am nervous. I've witnessed her resilience, self efficacy and recovery from multiple pneumonias, illnesses and painful secondary ailments caused by medications. But this total open abdominal procedure will really immobilize her and expose her to infection (inpatient or out). I'm scared, but can't fully express it because she is scared and seeks emotional comfort and strength from me. Every day I "should" be grateful, not worrying.I apologize for writing so much on my first post. I hope to find some support and insight here.StefanSee More
