In two weeks, I'll be celebrating the six-month anniversary of my transplant.
To date, everything is going great. My new system gets its daily checks along with the every other week visit to the med center lab and the once every two month visit to my transplant team. The amounts of meds have decreased and the two major anti-rejection medicines are slowly being tweeked down to an amount that I'll be able to handle the rest of my life.
You would think the transplant itself would be the major source of physical pain & discomfort and mental anguish but isn't close to the side-effects of the two anti-rejection drugs. I'm told by many Doctors that once the dosages are found, the side-effects will cease. Considering what I went through, this is a small discomfort for the rewards I'll be living with the rest of my life.
Running out of space at this time but would like to Thank Everyone for their thoughts and prayers. I couldn't have made it through without all the support I received from family, friends and the transplant team including all the staff.
