@jerrydrennan, it is wonderful to hear from you. I hope you will add your own your story highlights here, too!
Hello, I wanted to give everyone a up date. I am alive and well after having a liver transplant 2.5 years ago. My transplant doctor warned me that I might gain weight. I gained and lost 20 pounds. I have gained all my muscle mass back. I am still on Tacrolimus 5 per day. I feel good, and Have mental clarity. I am blessed that I was able to live through such a event and I credit the fine people at Cedars-Sinai Transplant center for my out come. I can't express more the fact that your chances of success are better if you find out as much information about your condition as possible and that includes finding a transplant specialist to evaluate your condition. Keep yourself in good shape other than the obvious, and ask questions of the health professionals you deal with.
If you are in need of a parasentesis you may be better off scheduling with interventional radiology instead of the emergency room. All is well and best wishes to all. TIM
