Joost, I am actually feeling terrific!  I am much stronger than I was before my transplant, suffering from cholangitis/blood infections every month.  I am just getting stronger and healthier each and every day!  Most everything for me has stayed the same or went back to normal except for at first I was craving Ice cream like crazy and I also enjoy working out now.  I think the transplant motivated me and maybe to offset the ice cream:).  I did have strange dreams while sedated during and after my transplant that made me wake to say that I had a transplant from a 17 year old boy.  I found out months later that was the case.  Not sure if maybe the doctors said it while I was in operating room or what???  My mom also had the same feeling, but no one told her and she was never sedated ;)  Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

"After the transplant my bp slowly went up and has stayed. Metoprolol and lisinopril dosing and that keeps it manageable. Must lose some weight and continue to exercise . Never had bp problems pre transplant but do now."
