@flagal22, Thank you for what you have shared. As I read your account of your experience, I could feel myself in your place 10 years ago, except that I needed to have a kidney transplant along with my liver transplant. I hope that you will enjoy many years of a healthy life and I echo your words of gratitude, "Thank you Liver Teams for a chance of a longer life!"
@flagal22 Congratulations on your transplant. I have never heard of such a high MELD score! It’s no wonder that your transplant occurred much sooner than anticipated when you started with a MELD 10.
My transplant happened when my MELD was 28 but it was about to be re-evaluated and I am sure it would have increased at that point. I was pretty miserable when the call came, so like you there was no fear or apprehension, just relief.
The gratitude I have for feeling well is immense. I have been great ever since my transplant. It sounds as if you have also, that’s wonderful.
