Thank you Rosemary for tagging me in this conversation. I weighed about 240 lbs. at the time of transplant; when I returned home I continued to lose down to my lowest since age 14. I stated earlier in the PICS conversation that I had lost a bunch of weight. I actually was able to buy jeans in a size 14. I did not feel “right” at this weight. Gradually, I regained all of it back.
I started my journey in 2010 prior to transplant in 2011.
I shared my whole story on PICS and am enjoying this forum to talk about my experiences.
I am about to celebrate my 6th year postsurgery for liver/kidney and, although it took me a while to recover, I am doing well at this time. I just need to start working on the weight issues again.
Thanks for allowing me the privilege to share my story. If you have any specific questions, I am happy to answer.
Until next time, CK.
