Share whatever information you want us to know about you

I am 65 years old and had polycystic liver for over 30 years. Was told no concerns. However, three years ago all of my liver enzymes went haywire and my liver size increased drastically. The enzymes resolved but one year ago my liver became very angry. The cysts in my liver grew and obstructed my bile duct, putting pressure on all of my other ducts as well. Had to have stent placed and replaced every 90 days. My body did not like this. I was hospitalized 6 times in six months. Thankfully my youngest son insisted on being an organ donor and I received 60 % of his live 7/11/2018. I can never give him back what he gave me and I am soooo grateful. He just returned to work 9/7/18 and is doing well.
