Hi we went for our education session today and we seem to get different advice depending on who we talk to.
The Consultant said waiting times for blood group A would be 4 to 6 months but today the transplant co-ordinator said it was 6 to 12 months which is quite a difference.
Again the consultant said the operation would take 8 - 12 hours but today we were told 4 - 6 hours.
So - very confused so not sure what to expect.
Has anyone else had a recent transplant at Kings and what was your experience.
Not complaining at all about the staff - we have been treated with nothing but respect and help but just confused about conflicting advice.
My husband is blood group A - has had Ascites drains and has had one year of banding. Recently suffering from hepatic encephalopathy and seems to be getting worse quite quickly.
he still tries to work part time but has had to have 4 months off this year due to ill health.
Would love to hear from anyone.
