my father had a transplant a year ago and is still in agonising pain.
is there anyone else that is experiencing the same thing? if so how long did the pain take to go? is there anyone out there that experienced pain for that long?
im worried about him as we dont know whats wrong and the doctors are saying the liver is ok

Hi There,
I had a transplant just over 7 months ago, and personally I haven't experienced much pain for several weeks now. From what I've gathered though, people can have dramatically different experiences after a liver transplant. I know one person who never experienced any pain at all. I had pain for the first few weeks after the op, at first it was like horrible pulling twisting sensations, and the feeling that my new liver was just way too big for my body, and later I would get sharp pains that took my breath away.
I'm sorry to hear about your father experiencing so much pain. When I had sharp pain a few weeks after the op, the doctors told me it was the sar tissue in my abdomen rather than the liver itself. Perhaps your father's incision has not healed so well? Scar tissue can cause pain for quite a long time after everything has healed, but hopefully it will reduce in time.
I hope the doctors can do something for him.

Kofi, Was the liver the only thing that was done? If you still have your gall blatter they take it out and also the apindix ? (Spelling) It they took those that could be a lot of his pain. Also if he didn;t have them it could be sar tissue for when they wre remove back when. They only had to pull my gall blatter. I hadd a lot of pain in that area which is close to the liver. Also The site in my leg where they did the bypass hurt the most and for over a year. If it just in the sar area it can take a few years for all the nerves to wake up and start getting back to normal. It's been over four year since I had mine and I still have area around my sar that still hurt from time to time. If he is having some type of deprestion that could be part of the problems. Need to ask the doctors about it and what could be causing it I sure they can get to the bottom of it.
