I received a simultaneous liver/kidney transplant at Mayo in 2009. I had Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC) that progressed to liver failure, and caused acute kidney failure. After a difficult pre-transplant period, my newly transplanted organs began to work immediately. My post-transplant period went smoothly. With health fully restored, I lead a normal life. My husband and I enjoy travel to the National Parks. Our favorite activity is hiking.
