I was blessed to receive a liver transplant on 12.30.19. I had a biopsy performed last week. All went well. I'm in Va. Don't wait nervously for the other shoe to drop it all ready has you you survived.

@debyrichardson17, Welcome to Mayo Connect. It is my honor to meet you and to join @tjgisewhite, in congratulating you on your liver transplant.
I am glad to hear that all went well for you. You have certainly had unique journey with transplant before COVID19, and now a post transplant biopsy that involved the extra safety protections. Do you think that you were extra nervous before the procedure because of COVID19? What would you say to someone to reassure them as they awaited an outpatient procedure? What made you feel the most safe and secure in the midst of this pandemic?
