Hi. Am new to network. As a recent transplant patient after months of being very ill, I am looking to share other people experiences and just connect with others
New here: Hi. Am new to network. As a... - British Liver Trust
Welcome aboard Michael, I am sure your pre and post transplant experiences will be a great help and support to others.
A warm welcome to our forum.
We hope you can share your experiences with our members here and find the forum a supportive place to visit
Welcome, There a lot of good people on here
My transplant was over 2 years ago now, and it took me eight years to get there
Welcome👍 My transplant was December 2019 at King’s! I had 4 trips from Devon to King’s between September and December and the 5th time was my time to get my life changing gift! It is a different experience for everyone and it is still a “school day” every day🙏👍
I agree. Is amazing gift and a second chance. Is about doing everything to keep the new liver healthy
Hi Michael and welcome,
I agree, there are still so many questions post transplant, and you’ll find you have the answers to someone’s weird anomalies that are asked on here.
Welcome and it great that you want to share your experience. My husband is waiting for a transplant assessment appointment so I would love love to know what you have learned and what questions to ask.
Hi. Thanks for your message. I think it is important to ask about the medication he will need to be on post transplant. Is important to get clarity on diet too. Where are you based as I think different trusts are slightly different
We are in Lincolnshire but the transplant team are at Addenbrookes in Cambridge
It's a great gift mate I had mine in April 2017 easter Sunday I've not looked back only to thank the staff at the qe and my doner enjoy your life embrace it
Haha, you were just after me, lol. I was discharged from the QE on the Maundy Thursday just before the Easter weekend 2017.
Hi, 3 years post transplant here, had mine at Addenbrookes, welcome to the recycled parts club. Hope all is going ok
Hiya. How are you feeling? I'm pre-transplant, so I can't imagine coming out of the other side 🤔. My anxiety is epic at the moment 😵
I wish you all the best .. look after your lovely new liver🥰
Hiya, yep on the list.... again 🙄. It's always great to hear from people who have recently been there. I am so frightened😵.
I'm in Nottingham, so will be at Addenbrookes. They're a great bunch and I have every faith that my turn will come 🌞
Again, I wish you so much happiness 💕xx
Your turn will come and your transplant team will look after you really well! My co-ordinator was with me every step of the way answering questions! Of course you are frightened, but the Gift you are given is so precious and gives you a second chance of life🙏 Stay safe👍
I can understand you being frightened but I agree, your transplant team will look after you. They are there to help and answer any questions. They will also help put you at ease every step of the way. And the difference you feel afterwards is amazing
Good luck and stay safe 💜🌈
Thank you , night night 😴
Hello Mike, I was scheduled for tx in October, estimated to be between May to August until Covid came along which has really put a spanner in the works, I was dx with Advanced Liver Disease 15 years aged 24, there are many that have had a longer plight, keep well xx
