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!

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.

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.

This is a group for all people who have had liver transplants. Feel free to say how long you have been a recipient and what medication you are on. Some doctors hope to have their patients off all medications, any thoughts?
