  • Also be careful when carrying things that may pinch or stick you. These are words from experience.
  • Hi Sophie,

    I had my liver transplant just over a year ago. I also have some numbness in the same area. This was explained to me by my transplant team as a natural occurrence. The surgeon has to sever some nerves to get to the area they need to work on. These nerves are permanently damaged and it was brought up to me as a precautionary reason. The doctor told me be careful when leaning over anything as you may not feel any damage that could be occurring. This goes for bending over to lift but more importantly around the stove or grill. To be honest I really do not notice. Keep asking your good questions as in this and other posts. Things will get better and you are an inspiration to everyone.

    Good Luck


    • Thank you Tom, I will try to be careful and I am already starting to get used to it. I hope all is well with you.
