Jul 25, 2018 · waiting for liver transplant in Transplants

@myfriend
Is there a Mayo Clinic near her? I am a loyal Mayo Clinic liver transplant patient (Today is day 62 of my new life!) because I receive superior-in-every-way care. There is a liver transplant program in my own city, but I did not choose to use it. Instead I travel/ed 2+ hours to the Mayo Clinic Phoenix. Their team approach that encompasses every part of my life is what sold me on Mayo. Everything about Mayo Clinic, from my very first contact in March 2015, has exceeded my expectations. And I have high expectations! You can ask anyone who knows me!

I am saddened that she is so unwell. But having you as a friend, keeping up faith when she seems to be losing hers, is a valuable gift. I can't overstress the importance of your friendship and support.

All the best to you and your friend,
Jeanene

Jul 17, 2018 · Elimination odors in Transplants

Since my liver transplant 7 weeks ago, my urine and bowel movements do not smell like MY urine and BMs. I was told that it might be due to the new/used liver OR it might be from new medications. The smell is very "fishy", and no, I am not eating fish.
Has anyone else experienced this? Even my husband agrees that the smell of both is not like before transplant.
Just curious,

Jul 17, 2018 · Hip replacement after having had kidney transplant in Transplants

I had a L total hip replacement, then before my R hip got bad enough for replacement, I was given the shocking diagnosis of cirrhosis! I am now 7 weeks POST Liver Transplant and my hip is the source of my only pain. I can't wait until I can have it replaced. Feeling so healthy and yet having to use a walker or wheelchair to get around is not right. How I miss my NSAIDs and Cymbalta! Those medications kept me mobile. sigh. I hope I can get a new hip at six months. I think I am ready for it now!

I must withdraw my previous post. I assumed your husband was POST liver transplant. Please ignore my previous post.

Did you look under your phone's > calendar > event > repeat settings for "custom"? I have a medication I take every three days and it reminds me with a notification. Plus I can see it on my calendar! See if your calendar app (mine is Google Calendar).
