Amigo queridoooo tanto tiempo, había estado con poco tiempo por el trabajo, pero igualmente feliz ya que tengo la oportunidad de destinar un día de la semana para trabajar en una escuela intrahospitalaria que trabaja con niños enfermos de cáncer y también Insuficiencia Renal crónica entre otras, imaginate!, poder compartir con los niños que más lo necesitan y los que más disfrutan estudiando. Ahora ya con el tiempo más organizado estaré de vuelta.

Te mando un fuerte abrazo desde la distancia, pero con el cariño de siempre.

When I had my breathing tube removed the FIRST words out of my mouth were,"WHO the F**K do you mother-F***ers thin you are?!!?!?!"

Before my Tx I was very meek-manared and quiet. But this "new" me was not "me". I never cussed at alll splaeon a "M-F" is ot something  would feel comfortable with; yet the words flowed off my tongue as if I'd been driving a truch for decades now! AND I was not embarrassed at all!!

I think this was from "cell-memory"; memories from the doner who was liberal with his loose tongue! After weeks of abuse and after-thought I HAD to apologize to my doctors and nurses for my uncommon behavior and vocabulary!!!!

I do believe in "cell=memory" as many other unusual things have happened that normally would NOT have happened during "MY" life!!!!!!

Hey thanks for the advice, definitely going to try and give that book a try. I do have some books like Joel Osteen and they do keep me motivated and positive but only sometimes. I guess I have to really put my mind into it to grasp what the author is trying to say.

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

Surgery after transplant

I recently injured my hand and now have to have surgery on it to repair it. They are going to be putting me out for the surgery. Now grant it, I, on a regular basis go to my transplant center for different procedures(ie;allomap, biopsies, heart caths, etc) and feel completely at ease in doing so, it has been 4.5 years since my heart transplant, Yet I have found myself with a lot of anxiety going into this surgery, one that they are putting me under, two, it is not at my transplant center but at another hospital. It is really weird that i seem to have more anxiety concerning this surgery then I did about my transplant. The faith I have been granted affords me to have confidence in my eternal destiny to be with Christ and that is what/and has guided me through my entire transplant journey. Can anybody shed some light on their experience they have had with other surgeries following transplant. With a grateful heart, JeffSee More

My Acute Liver Failure was the result of Hepatitis C contracted during an emergency C-section in1978!

I lived with stage 4 (end stage) liver disease for 15 years. The fall of 2010 was the beginning of a rapid decline. I received a transplant in May of 2011. As you know a transplant gives you a new life but does not cure the hepatitis C, it begins its damage of your new liver immediately. Thanks to the incredible staff of the Mayo Clinic Liver Department and new drugs Solvaldi and Olysio I have been virus free for over 5 months and hope that my 6 month blood test will be still be negative. Interferon and ribovarin would show no virus and then a month or so it would rear it's ugly head. I had no side effects from the two new drugs. These drugs are very very expensive but I was fortunate that Mayo knew where to go for help with these two drugs whose combined costs is $58,000 per month for 3 months. $174,000.
