I thought after he had the liver transplant we will be out of the woods and he’s been in the icu for a week he don’t look like he’s getting out any time soon and he’s back on a breathing tube cuz now he has fluid in his lungs and pneumonia so things are not looking good plZ pray and somone give me good news that he will make it thro this . He’s getting tired and restless he don’t want to fight no more and that scares me

He is in the right place just now, hope they get to grips with his infection and he pulls around ok. It isn't unusual to have 'teething troubles' - another of our members Chelle has now been under sedation for 3 weeks now post transplant having had to have 2 new livers within 24 hours. It takes a while to get the balance of meds and treatment settled.

Keep the faith and hopefully he will get through this step back.

Thoughts with you, Katie xx

Hi

I was in icu for 3 weeks and in hospital for 5 post op. I’m sure they are taking care of him. We are all different and take different times to get over things. Love to you both

I totally agree with you, people do get better at different rates. Love and hugs to everyone xxxx

Wish you all the very best and hope all comes right extra soon.

Keep strong and stay positive. He is in the best place and they will be doing everything they can to get on top of this. Sending you loads of extra positivity and good thoughts. Fingers and toes crossed for him. Xx 🤞🤞🤞🤞

I’m so sorro and hope he gets better soon. Try and stay positive, my husband was poorly immediately after his transplant, but now one year on, he’s really well. I’m sure the hospital are doing all they can.

He's in the right place. I had a severe issue with fluid in my lungs, but it did self drain eventually. Unfortunately they can only drain a couple of litres at a time with a needle. It doesn't really give you much relief, but it will come good. It takes time. Important part is to keep him positive. Encourage friends a and family to visit. Gives you a break and gives others the opportunity to help him get motivated.

Plz let me know what happen with u cuz it sounds just like my dad he has fluids in his lungs and now there saying there might be an infection and nose he’s on a breathing tube and they don’t know when they will take it off and he’s getting so tired we don’t know what to do they even tighten his arms to the bed

Hi your husband is in the right place and hopefully he will be on the mend soon thinking of you both hope things start to get better real soon xx

It's Soso's Dad who has had t/p. :)

It’s my father and thank u

Positive vibes for everyones recovery xxx

So sorry to hear you are having a tough time and it is understandable that he feels he has had enough. Hospitals are busy noisy places, not at all the quiet soothing environment that you would wish for at this difficult time, but he does need all that medical support at the moment. 🙏 that he can hang in there and will turn a corner soon and the infection can be controlled. Take care and keep fighting with him and can both summon up the immense strength needed now. JX

I'll have some prayers an lots of good positive thing for your hubby.Tell him to not give up as he hasn't come all this way to give up now .make him fight for his health an will himself well.All the very best to you all for a great fast outcome .Bless you all xxx

How's your dad doing to dayhun ??

Some times these things happen but it will get better

Pneumonia is pretty normal laid up for that long if he has been on his back and under sedation he will not change the tidal air in his lungs and it is normal and expected

Keep strong keep supporting him and try to keep yourselfe and him looking to the good future it will start soon

Thank u all for ur positive thoughts at least someone is cuz I’m giving up . Yesterday I saw him and his hand were tight up and he’s looking and can’t talk cuz of the feeding tube and upset me so much are hands are tight up with him if he can not breath on his own we wish to take every breath for him . He has suffered so much and all he wants is for that tube to get out so he can speak to us he is so tired this is the first time I see him like this this broken and ready to say goodbye and it scares me and my brother and sister we feeling like he’s giving up and im scared he did all of this just to suffer before he leaves us plZ keep praying for our strength and his
