Congratulations on the new liver!
It's understandable that you would have some strong emotions after your experience. Not all of them are going to be good every day. That's perfectly normal. The medications probably don't help, either.
There are a lot of great people here. Keep messaging.
Fiance had HCV, cirrhosis, ESLD, ascites, and portal hypertension. Was transplanted June 2004. Now, on interferon and ribavirin. Hepatitis C is back.
It's been a while since your last post.
How are you doing? Everything going well?
Hi There! I'm doing really well thanks,
I'm really starting to get back to normal now. I'm looking for work, applying for a university course next year and finally getting some driving lessons.
I've decided to stop worrying about things all the time and just get on with my life. I've spent the last few months doing nothing but thinking, so now I want to start actually doing things!
Hope everything is going well with you and your fiancee.
My fiance, Mark, whom I quote constantly, was transplanted in June, 2004. He's gotten a lot of his memories back, but some things are still a little 'gone.' In fact, he remembers certain things better than I do. Other things are just kind of an ammonia-tainted haze that he's positive happened and I'm positive didn't.
I was very pleased to read the story about the lady who had a liver transplant 6 years ago and then went on to have a baby. I had an emergency liver transplant nearly 6 years ago, due to an arthritis condition that can cause problems with your organs. I am now very well and ready to start a family. I have had the all clear from the hospital so its all ayatems go now. Very excited....just hope I don't have any problems conceiving now!!! xxx
Hi, Stuart, and welcome to the forum! I wish you all the luck in the world with starting a family! You did pick up on a very old post.
