Hi! My husband is tentatively scheduled to receive a living donor transplant on Aug 3. I'd love to hear "real life" stories of what to expect after the surgery. We have a daughter who just turned 2 and I am due with our second baby Sept 7. We know that's cutting it very close, but felt it would be better to have the surgery before the new baby is born. He is 36 and otherwise healthy (aside from Ulcerative Colitis), so his doctors are very encouraging about his recovery.
