I was liver transplant number 199 in 1989. 30+ years ago at Mayo Rochester. Back then it was considered experimental.

First of all I would like to thank you for your kind words. Like many of my fellow transplant recipients I would like to say its normal to have many fears post transplant (tests, blood work, and trepidation from a random ache or pain). I would also say to try to enjoy the great gift that you received. Always appreciate all that your caregivers have done for you and try to understand what they they went through to help you along your journey.
