Liver Cysts with PKD

Posted by elevinton @elevinton, Sep 16, 2018

I had a kidney transplant in 2012. I now have cysts on my liver. I am told my liver weighs between 15-25 lbs. Are there any treatments to reduce the size, remove or prevent the growth of liver cysts?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Transplants group.

@elevinton, I am happy beyond words for you!
I know that you will receive the best of care as well answers to your questions. I hope that everything goes in an acceptable direction for you.
I want to encourage you to look into the Gift of Life Transplant House while you are in Rochester. http://www.gift-of-life.org
It is a beautiful lodging for transplant patients and a caregiver.
I will be on the watch for your report.

Rosemary, I am scheduled for an Extended Right Hepatectomy on July 23. Thank you again for all your help in making this happen. I will tour the Gift of Life House tomorrow to see if that will work for me.

@elevinton, I am visiting today. and decided to drop in and say Hi. I hope you are feeling okay.
Do you still plan to have the Extended Right Hepatectomy in July? Is there any kind of monitoring or intervention taking place between now and then?
