Hi. My partner had xplant July 2016 & is showing signs of a fatty liver. Also I would't worry too much about the meds. It can take a while to get the dosages right for you. You should have a team of nurses that you can contact if you have any worries. Ours are a great lot of guys who will answer any questions no matter how trivial.

Just try not to worry too much & enjoy the second chance of life that you have been given....it's still early days .

Have a great Xmas.xx

I was pleased to see your recent post. I also understand how you feel when you go to out-patients. Someone in my family always tries to be there on the grounds that two pairs of ears are better than one. It is sometimes difficult as I am a widow, and my own children are spread around the world. I do find that the family members share notes (with my permission of course ). I know I attend the same hospital as you do but I do wish that they had a specialist nurse as they do in other health fields - they are really useful for explaining things if available. I think I will have to wait on this score. Good luck! I am thinking of you.

Hi Angse, I am new to this site & just reading what you have survived puts a nose bleed in perspective. Reading your post & the replies removed fear of the unknown. Wishing you the best of medical attention to you & your liver. Scarred and little bit less scared.

Hi angse 😯. Good to receive your msg this morning. Glad to hear you are Counting your blessings & enjoying your new freedom. I am now starting the day with a "please" & ending it with a "thankyou". You've just inspired me to go to a weekly Mindfulness morning (run by Alcohol & Other Drugs Service, set up by Queensland government in Australia where I live). Finding that peace between the ears....practising. Better than a "doona" day. It's cold & windy today, good walking weather!

Back to fatty liver. Gastroenteroligist looking after me talks about benefit of a Mediterranean diet. That's also for heart health & diabetes. Damnation! no chips!

Thanks again. Avaguday.
