@birdienanie I will be waiting to hear the results of your testing and if you become a transplant candidate. I was a liver transplant recipient and I know the waiting can seem to go on and on. My evaluation was done over a number of weeks, but perhaps that was because we were within a not unreasonable drive to the transplant center.
Have you had all of the tests required now? Most of them were pretty easy but a couple were unpleasant.

I had my tests over one week except two. I have an additional consult and wrap up meeting next week. I thought the evaluation was rigorous- fasted 3-4 days till the afternoon for diagnostic testing and some tests with sedation. I am glad to have that part behind me. Thank you for asking. I will keep you posted on the decision.
