Jun 30, 2012 · Liver Transplant in Transplants

Yea for you! I too was at the Mayo for months after my liver transplant. Transplanted May 24, 2008. Went home at the end of August. Unfortunately, I was so sick at the time of my transplant I was in the hospital for 2 months before the transplant. Meld score of 43. (The additional 3 points were given because of hepital -renal syndrome – my liver caused my kidneys to fail. )
I had to rehab for a month to walk again and then was treated for the kidney failure.
I am back to most of my old activities again. I work a full day and have started singing in a mixed chorus to raise money for various charitable organizations.
I still have chronic kidney failure, not bad, not on dialysis, and doesn’t interfere with anything I want to do!

Apr 13, 2012 · Liver Transplant for Primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) in Transplants

I had a liver transplant in May, 2008 at 55 years old. The cause of the liver failure was NASH, or fatty liver. I was weeks away from death with a MELD Score of 43. (renal failure figured into that score). I am doing well but still have chronic kidney disease (not on dialysis). I am going back to Mayo – Jacksonville next month for my annual check-up.
