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!
