my update

some of you lovely people have asked for an update on my chance of getting on the transplant list after i was told my antibodies were 78% which were going to be looked at to see if there were any week ones they could ignore to reduce the percentage

all my antibodies were strong so it leaves a small chance of a donor match but they have asked me back in january for the second assessment so its not a no so far but its a long waiting game

thanks for asking guys x x x x

Hi Mandy,is it because you,re more likely to reject the donor organ that this is a problem?I was offered a liver transplant years ago but did,nt even consider it as I did,nt know how ill I was.Somehow pulled through without it.The science is improving all the time so will be gunning for you all the way,the best of luck! D.

yeah it is because of that but the bit i was upset over was before they knew i had a high percentage of antibodies they had already said they would be happy to offer me a transplant so i was a bit shocked to find out after that they may not

its all very complicated and a roller coaster ride ...its really good to know your gunning for me lovely man thank you
