Share how your transplant experience changed your life?

I have only known a life with my transplant. I was a small child when I received my liver and I grew up as a transplantee. I have never been "normal" and have had to deal with certain problems only transplant patients could understand through every stage of life.

  • Happy Birthday Kayla !

  • Sorry your experience with Dr. Levy wasn't ideal. I have been taking 5mg of prednisone since transplant. I am also on 3 mg twice a day of prograf. I take ursidoll too. I think it is 900mg. I also have a colon condition, so I take asacol. Sorry it has taken months for me to respond. I am going to try and make myself get on here more often.

  • Happy birthday Kayla! Have a great day! You should join us for chat on Saturdays and Sundays starting at 2 pm CDT. Hope to see you there!

  •  Happy Birthday Kayla ! 

  • Hi Kayla. My name is Yvette Mason. Congrates on your up coming marriage!!! I was transplanted with a full liver transplant 9 years ago at Baylor All Saints there in Fort Worth. I am married and had a son 5 months before transplant and my second son will be 3 February 20th. Yes.....you read right....I HAD A HEALTHY BABY BOY POST FULL LIVER TRANSPLANT!!! GOD HAS BEEN GRACIOUS!!! I am currently on 3mg of prograf and 5mg of prednisolone. My wonderful transplant doctor was Dr. Marlon Levy. I don't know who your doctors are, but I loved and wished that I was still in the Dallas area so that I could still see my doctors at Baylor All Saints. I am open to sharing more of my story, but I will share this also, I was told by my doctors that out of all organs, LIVERS seem to do the best during pregnancy. And I had absolutely, NO complications during or after. As I always say, every bodies case is different, but I am a firm believer that God is FAITHFUL and can provide!! God Bless!!
