@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.

@contentandwell Thank you for your well wishes! I did not know the MELD score could go over 40 either, until meeting 2 liver transplant recipients by chance while waiting for an appointment at Mayo. They both came to Mayo in Jacksonville after being treated at hospitals near their homes. They told me there stories of having MELD scores over 40 and receiving their transplants in about 1 week after arriving at Mayo. Take care!
