Hi everyone. This is my first time to this forum.I had 2 liver transplants in 2005.The first transplant rejected as soon as they put it in and
they took it out and I was without a liver for 20 hrs. It was a miracle
that I recd another liver. I was on diaylsis for three months because without a liver your kidneys won't work.Since my transplant I have
had 10 incisional hernias. When my liver was taken out the first time
they left me open and my body swelled. My muscles in my abdomen
were ripped and there was no muscle left to attache the mesh to when
they tried to repair my hernias. Now on each side of my body I have
mesh attached to my ribs to hold my intestines in. I have pain everyday.
I also have hypothyroidism, fibro, miagraines, and chronic pain.
I have taken thyroid medicine for 7 years now. I simply cannot lose
weight. The transplants have something to do with that but does
anyone have any suggestions on losing weight. Even not eating
doesn't help. Thanks for listening to my story! Diane
