@guidant07, My transplant surgery was in April 2009. It was called a simultaneous surgery: 1 donor, 1 surgery, 2 organs. Both organs began to work immediately after surgery, and they still are. Taking care of myself is a top priority and every day is a day to give thanks. I was taking prednisone for several years until the research showed that I could stop taking it. I do, however continue with my other 2 other anti-rejection medications.
After my transplant, I wanted to regain my strength and endurance so husband and I could do some hiking. How about you? What do you want to do when you are recovered and walking again?
