  • Welcome Linda! My heart goes out to you because we share some similarities in our stories. I was on TPN for almost two years before I had my multivisceral transplant. It was my only way of getting nutrition due to digestive system dysfunction and was ruining my liver, one of the main reasons I needed a transplant. I recently celebrated just last month my eighth year multivisceral transplant anniversary. I would be glad to share any of my experience if you think it might be of help to you. I remember how difficult it was for me before my transplant as I was very weak and somewhat scared at the prospect of a six organ transplant (although excited too though that there was some hope for me) and how much it helped to meet someone who had gone through something similar before me. You can write me at my email if you would like at tombeedesnues@yahoo.com . I will keep you in my prayers. Many, many hugs.
