I would , pomergranates have been added to the lists of things that mess with our rejection meds
Donor genes are a concern mainly because of acquired antibodies, which may affect "hiding" the Tx organ from the immune system. It is highly doubtful there would be any genetic transfer to future offspring.
Hey Lung transplants
I just passed five years. Lots of issues over time.
I recently reduced my prograf from six a day down to two a day. Much better muscle growth/control. To the folks concerned with EBV: I never thought about it until last year when a tumor was discovered in my lung. It was removed and found to be from EBV. We cannot deal well with virus and currently am issue free.
I know that we are supposed to be careful about being around others who have had live virus shots (flu shots, others...). But I've heard differing ideas about exactly what that means. I've even heard slightly different things from each of the three transplant docs who see me periodically.
For example, stay away from the person for 10 days, or 2 weeks, etc.. I've heard it's ok to be around the person, but just avoid touching or being too close; then I've heard that you should just stay away altogether for a period of time.
Our new baby granddaughter had live virus vaccinations 3 days ago, and I'm trying to decide if I should just totally stay away, or if it would be okay to see her but not get too close to her or hold her, etc.
