Just a little update:
I felt awful yesterday. Just very tired and weak. Better today (so far.) Since the morning of surgery, I have lost a total of 20 lbs. in fluid, some fat and muscle. I'm feeling much more comfortable, though still having some abdominal pain in a couple of spots. I am now thinking the Lasix should be reduced somewhat.
I've put in a call to my Transplant Coordinator (TPC or TC), asking her to call me later today to discuss this, as well as the weakness, shortness of breath,
open wounds, etc. I have no appt. to see her this month, as far as I know. I do go in for labs on Wed. AM, and am going to see if she can fit me in that afternoon or later in the week. I would just feel better if someone were keeping an eye on me. It seems that if the labs are good, she sees no reason to check me out. But the whole story is not shown in labs--never has been, with me.
Will add a P.S. later when/if I hear back from her.
P.S. I never received a call back. However, she may have gotten my message late and didn't have a chance to call.
