Hi everyone, I had a transplant in March 1997 when I was 6 years old (I’ll be 28 in November) and for the last couple of years my lfts have been raised and at one point I was very, very jaundiced. I was put back on the list in January this year. I don’t remember much of my first transplant and I didn’t take much in at the assessment so I’d love to hear people’s experiences of both being on the list and the transplant itself.
On a more positive note other than the blip I had being jaundiced for around 6 months I’ve lived a normal healthy life and have had 2 successful pregnancies also. My current symptoms aren’t awful either, a bit of pain around my liver and in my legs which the doctors think is due to the varices I have from hypertension and feeling quite tired. I hope that little bit helps anyone waiting for their first liver feel more positive about their life post transplant.
Thanks to anyone that reads this 🙂
