I recently joined and wondered if some could share their experience with having pets post transplant.
I have two dogs which are essentially my kids. I was told by the transplant team that it is only necessary to have the dogs out of the house for about the first 30 days after coming home. I understand that everyone is different so would welcome hearing some real life experiences.
One dog is a new puppy that should be potty trained by the end of the year. I would primarily be wondering if in fact it is dangerous to even be in the vicinity of poop (like outdoors in the yard) or if handling is the only issue.
I made the list for a liver transplant last February and will have my exception points become effective near the end of October, so might be dealing with the reality soon.
Thanks for any input! :)
