Hi my sister had a double transplant liver and kidney just over two weeks ago!
Though she has had diarrhea for nearly two weeks since the operation, and also her hemoglobin levels keep going down every three days, she has had a lot of blood transfusions during those weeks , though it still keeps going low. They advised her this happens as her body is consuming a lot if the blood, is that normals she lost a lot during surgery, though still after 2 weeks as her levels do level out then go low again ?
Also we were recently advised that during surgery she had about 10cm cut out of her intestine due to complications! Could this be why she’s having constant diarrhea for two weeks now!
So my concerns are her continued diarrhea issue and her low hemoglobin levels, after two weeks of post surgery!
Has anyone else has had these issues and is it normal post transplant. She is also still in hospital, her kidney and liver numbers are good though!
Look forward to your replies as a very concerned sister and family ! Thank you
