Has anyone had heart surgery while being on Liver Transplant list?
I was put on the liver transplant list five months ago after fighting my symptoms over 15 years ago at Mayo. The Jacksonville team is totally awesome and has saved my life multiple times. Congenial Hepatic Fibrosis, which has led to high portal tension, emergency esophageal banding, TIPS, and multiple bacteremia in blood system, and Sepsis. Naturally over time, I have taken care of my health and Mayo has monitored and tested regularly. I am now "temporarily" put on hold and not available for Transplant. I am 2 weeks post open heart bypass that was not detected previously through years of stress tests, calcium scores….
Has anyone been through this process? Curious once I heal, what Mayo's stance will be on this. I am hoping my new plumbing and 100% recovery will put me back on list as Active. 57 years young!
