Fri, Jun 28 8:22pm · Taking probiotics after liver transplant in Transplants

I finally met with my team at Scripps and they said probiotics are fine. At this point out I’m not severely immunosuppressed. She mentioned if I were getting a bone marrow transplant or certain other situations she would have restricted it. I hope that gives some others some answers. ✌🏽

Does anyone have any experience taking probiotics after having a liver transplant. I am almost 4 years post transplant and would like to enhance my gut health and over all health if possible. I currently take tacrolimus and cellcept and wondering if it would be a waste of money or a possible health risk. I’ve read mixed information online.

Wow! That sounds super interesting. I'm sure there is more going on in Transplantation experiences, things that current science can't explain or has even researched!

I was lucky enough to receive a Liver Transplant at Scripps hospital in San Diego. I contemplated being dually listed by I decided that staying in San Diego and fighting my HCC (cancer) to buy time was my best option. It worked out but my two-plus years on the waiting list was trying at times. I'm sure I could share some helpful experiences. I'm looking forward to participating in discussions as my time permits.

I have no logical explanation other than I understand this is very common. I have also heard that this is quite common for any major abdominal Surgery. My taste buds have changed for sure but nothing quite that drastic. My surgeon seems to think there is a link to the chemicals in the anesthesia. Many changes have been for the good… I really can't stomach a Big Mac which is probably a blessing in disguise. My rebirth date is August 12 of 2015 so even today I'm still finding new things about my body.
