hi cabodave and welcome,
congratulations on your successful transplant!!
We have had a couple of members, in the last few years, that had transplants at Mayo. One was one of our moderators. She would always reference Mayo, when giving advice.
You were in the ideal situation for your surgery. You had a top notch transplant team. And you were in a state that can transplant livers at a lower meld.
My hepatologist advises her cirrhotic patients to look into moving to Arizona or florida, when transplants become necessary. I live in so. California, where transplants are given, with melds as high as 40.. lower melds, obviously mean better outcomes..
I wonder if your anti rejection meds, can alter your tastes? Immuno suppressants, which i use for MS, changes my taste perception. hopefully some of our TP members reply.
