Thanks for all your support guys, been here on the ward since 3am (nil by mouth). But now have a theatre slot for 6pm. Getting scared now, keep thinking of the donors family.

I remember Dr Perera. My surgeon was professor Muiesan. Every one of the specialists are amazing!

Yes brilliant sergeon , I had thormadermic regional perfusion , must say not had any problems since transplant touch wood! I'm only 5 months in recovery , long way to go yet !!

Do you remember the nurses? They were so amazing. My favourites were Carlos, Derm and I really liked the sister Nurse Laura. I loved all of them but you end up seeing some of them more often than others!

Hidden in reply to Jahida

Were they on nights when you was in ? When they took me from intensive care to the ward one nurse dropped the oxygen bottle on my tummy Jesus Christ the pain !!!!!

Jahida
Jahida in reply to Hidden

Derm is on during day or nights. He is loud and funny. Carlos does nights.

Oh my sounds so painful. How did they manage that? I can't imagine how horrible that must have been.

One time I had an agency nurse who was meant to slowly put my bed down once I got in. I couldn't lay down properly for a long time and move my legs due to swelling. Anyway I remember just trying to rest but suddenly I landed flat on the bed because she forgot to leave it reclined. The pain!

How long were you in there? I was in the hospital for nearly 2 months!

Hidden in reply to Jahida

They brought me from ICU to the ward whilst getting the bed right they disconnected the oxygen bottle and passed it over the bed not around and dropped it on my wound , it was like being electrocuted pain was unbearable,

I can't think what it would have been without being drugged up!!!!!

I was in for 6 days .

You don't live far from me. 7 miles!

Jahida
Jahida in reply to Hidden

I just realised that too! Where abouts do you live? I live in Telford!

I can't believe they did that and right on your wound. That is quite silly to have not passed it around the bed!

Hidden in reply to Jahida

I live in Newport just outside Telford . We're in Telford do you live?

It is scary but you are so lucky to be where you are. Fingers crossed all goes well and you will feel so much better really quickly post surgery.

The donor family are very brave to allow this to happen. My heart goes out to them. It will be a consolation that some good has come out of a tragedy. Xxx

Good luck, I hope all goes well and head for speedy recovery ....

I would be thinking the same re donor family. You have been blessed. Take care. Let us know how you get on when you can. Our thoughts are with you

Wishing you all the luck in the world and a speedy recovery.

Go get um Red good luck

Best of luck.x

By my estimations he'll be in ICU right now. All going well probably will be woken later today, and perhaps back on the ward before if not over the weekend.

It is crazy when I read how people came round on the same day and were shifted to the ward! I came round on the second day and was so restless that they had to sedate me for two more days. I came around 4 days later properly and then after a week I was transferred to the ward.

I wonder how he is doing! Hopefully he is in great shape.

I'm excited to read about his experience and how he is doing!

Dear Red,

I hope all is going well?

A long road ahead - stay positive...

Lots and lots of love,

Pear

Thinking of you. Good luck πŸ˜„

Brilliant news, glad it all went to plan on first call. Fingers crossed and best wishes for a speedy and straightforward recovery. Always good to hear the updates.

Looks after yourself Mrs Red as well, tough time for us loved ones.

Great news keep strong for him , the next few weeks are crucial , I will pray for him πŸ™

Amazing. Already on the ward.... double amazing. Thanks for letting us know Mrs Red and send him our good wishes.

Like Bolly said, thanks for letting us know - came back here to check and delighted he's all safe and back in a ward ~

Thank you for letting us know. Wow he has done well! Hope he keeps improving and recovering well!

I'm very nervous about my call and its brilliant to hear about such a short time in ICU and already back on the ward. Sounds like textbook surgery. Certainly puts my mind at ease hoping mine will go so well. Wishing you a rapid total recovery and home soon. (this is Jim - not Lucy)

Fingers crossed for a great recovery

Hope your recovery is going well and best wishes to your family
