24 month post transplant check up

Well 23 months strictly speaking. I had a scan the other day and a full set of blood tests. I saw my lovely Dr Z, the liver guy, today who said all is ok 😁. Infact possibly a little better than the last time I saw him πŸ˜‡. The only slight question is my thyroid, the T S H is a little high but that we'll check in a few months.

Very relieved. No reason why there should be a problem but as we all know the liver hides it’s problems and there are often no signs. This means the drs need to do the bloods and scans just to make sure. Didn’t even do a fibroscan. Last yr, post scan he did as he didn’t trust the scan. This yr the scan was perfect but he’d asked for an appointment with his preferred dr so trusted the result.

Anyway, everything is good so I’m feeling pretty happy 🀩.

Hope all is ok with you

Well done Isabelle.

Have they lowered your tacrolimus at all? I am now 30 months post and am now on 1mg twice a day. I'm looking to reduce this to half a tablet, but not due in clinic again until August.

Go out and celibate.

Wow, I was on 6.5 then about 8 mths ago down to 6 and as of today 5. Despite the heavy dose of tac i think I’m the healthiest ever concerning colds, tummy upsets etc. Not one in 23 months.

I hope you don’t think I should be celibate! I hope to celebrate πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ₯³πŸ₯³πŸ₯³
