  • I have a couple questions not sure how to ask but here goes. I live alone, after my transplant I lost a lot even some close family members as far as contact. I have days where I am quite depressed not only because of the lost of family members but as far as where I am in life right now. 1) what is the best way to handle depression? I think I am doing well so far as far as handling depression but there are times that it seems as if it's  over bearing. 

    Last question? I there anyone here that had a heart transplant, that is having stomach problems such as: really bad stomach aches feel full all the time (never hungry). Colonospy has been done, camera down the nose to the stomach has been done, but nothing found. This is so confusing.
