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!

Hi there Joost

 

Welcome to this great group of people who really care and share.

I am new here too - glad you have found your way here and glad we met at Flinders recently.   We are both incredibly blessed to have this second chance at life.

 

I hope you have a great Christmas and New Year and I look forward to hearing more of your progress and meeting up with you again in the new year.

"Hi, I'm two years out for Liver TP. Went into rejection after 3rd week. They had me on 4gm of Tacrolimus X 3. for a year, then 5mg X 2, and down to 2 x 2. My Tac level was 3.7 last test. Up from 3. They want you between 8 and 18. I was also on…"

"0.5 mg Prograf 3x/wk sounds weird.  If you are really taking that dosage you may not need Prograf. My transplant date was May 2003.  I have never had a rejection episode and after six years on Prograf alone I decided to taper off Prograf…"

"I have never heard of anyone taking .5 mg. of prograf every 9 days. Are you sure that's right? .5 mg. twice a day is the lowest dose I've heard of. I take 1 mg. twice a day and it's considered a low dose. Prograf is taken daily,…"

This is for those of us who take Prograf as a main immune suppressive drug. We can discuss side effects, etc. Or, we can just keep a head count of how many in the community take Prograf.
