I was diagnosed with cirrhosis caused by a long term Hep B & D coinfection in January last year followed by a full liver transplant last December. My last drink was in august last year. I was never a big drinker but enjoyed a social drink like most people. I was not aware of my Hepatitis infection until 2 years ago.
Thankfully the transplant went through with no serious complications.
It was easy staying off drinking in the 6 months leading up to the transplant and the 6 months after. Now I get occasional cravings and although never given in, I'm getting angry with myself as after everything my family and I went through last thing I would want to do, is make things worse for us. More importantly, I feel it's disrespectful to my donor's memory even thinking about drinking. I asked at the liver clinic if I could ever drink again and was told I could have literally a couple a year.
Anyone else going or has gone through a similar situation and how did you deal with it?
