My doctor has said the next time I see her she will discuss putting me on the waiting list for a transplant. I'm absolutely gutted. Part of me wants to say now as I'm still fit and healthy on the outside but she said I have chronic liver disease and cirrhosis. I'm at high risk of cancer and other serious health issues.
Has anyone here had a transplant? What's the process like? What's the life expectancy of a transplant patient? I heard I'll be at high risk of developing diabetes and on many meds for the rest of my life.
Is it true that once you have hep c you have it for life? Even with a new liver?
Any advice will be much appreciated.
