when i was young i wanted to be special to be different, - well 2 years ago i learnt i have a rare hereditary condition- that caused veins and arteries to join up and cause problems with your circulation . in me these AVM's as they are called are in my liver - causing me to have heart faliure and pulmonary hypertension - treatment is a liver transplant . I'm very lucky to be on the transplant list as my liver actually works very well . i attend the liver clinic every six weeks and wait for the phone call . So as my consultant said when he told me ,i needed a transplant be careful what you wish for you might get it .i don't mean to sound bitter ,but sometimes i feel so alone , as i don't know of anyone else in a similar position , who needs a liver transplant to treat another medical condition
