@contentandwell thank you so much for your help. I will definitely ask my transplant team as well.

@rosemarya Hello. It is cool here but the crocus are poking through.
I am starting to eat more solids without pain. Tastebuds are still way out of whack and certain food textures (like bread) are still compromised. I am moving April 1st so I've been pàcking boxes to keep busy.
I do have a question though. What are your thoughts on swimming in public/private pools, oceans and lakes? I'm concerned about bacteria in the water.
@caro72 hi there. I also am from Canada – London Ontario. I had a liver transplant Nov 28 2018. Where are you from? Which hospital are you referred to?
I would be asking my doctor a lot of questions. Are you seeing a hepatologist? Has a transplant been mentioned or alternative medication been prescribed? Until you know your MELD score and have been referred to a specialist you will not be placed on a transplant wait list (if needed). If they are taking blood monthly ask what they are testing for. Just a few suggestions. Research and the good people on this site will help with any questions you have based on their experiences. We are all here to help.
@bikermike Hi there. Thank you for your encouragement. I don't know if they will continue trying the ERCPs. It has been mentioned that perhaps another transplant may be a possibility. I had my transplant done at the transplant clinic in London Ontario at the University Hospital. We have a whole floor and medical team dedicated to transplants. My next ERCP is scheduled for Wed Mar 20th. Last 2 attempts ended with me being hospitalized for severe pancreatitis. Very painful and no food for 8 weeks. I'm still recovering. I'm praying this 3rd attempt is successful.
@bikermike I am going through the exact same thing. My transplant was Nov 2018. They have been unable to place a stent in my bile duct after several attempts. Right now I have an internal and external drain. I also had to be opened up and reoperated on due to an artery that need to be regrafted. I'm hoping next ERCP will be successful.
