Date for your Diary - A must watch

BBC Documentary about Surgeons concludes next week and is looking at clinical trials. One of which involves a method of utilising more marginal livers in liver transplantation. I think it will be an exceptionally interesting watch for most of us here. Even more so for me as one of the surgeons featured did my transplant, although not part of this trial.

The show airs next Monday 22nd Jan at 9pm GMT on BBC2

It'll also be available on the BBC iPlayer straight after for anyone not in the uk.

I'm watching episode 2 right now. Wow! Makes my transplant procedure seem like a walk in the park in comparison to some of the surgeries on there.

I'm in absolute awe at how far medicine has come!

Was Thamara Perera your surgeon then Kristian? I still haven't met mine 😑. Definitely need to say hello on my next appointment.

Yep, Mr Perera was my surgeon. I met him at my second clinic appointment after the op. But did only meet him the once. He was great and went through a few things with me about the operation. It was quite a light hearted conversation given some of the difficulties, but was really informative.
