Hi, my brother had a second liver transplant 5 weeks ago after graft dysfunction. He has been recovering well and he was expecting to be discharged today or tomorrow. He has now told me that there was something wrong with his liver function from the blood test results, he's been put on antibiotics and is having an MRI scan today. I haven't been able to get any information as yet as to what is wrong and what it means going forward.
All I got from the doctor yesterday was that they were very concerned, but not to worry as the new liver is working much better than the first one.
Needless to say I am worried! Have any other transplant recipients experienced something similar since the operation?
