Now that your liver is gonna work so much better, you will probably drop any extra pounds much easier once you are back on your normal routine.
I'm very fortunate to receive a new liver. My situation was very scary. Once I found out I had Autoimmune hepatitis (AIH), i was told i needed a new liver within 24-48 hours or else I'd die. I don't remember this at all, but my husband and family were scared. After 24 hours, I did receive a new liver from an anonymous 27 year old petite woman from the Dallas area. Her unselfish decision is what saved my life. I'll forever be grateful for her.

As far as my meds, the one that affects me so much is the prednisone. I'll be glad to discontinue taking it. My tranplant coordinator says after 6 months, I will probably stop taking it. March 7 will be 6 months post transplant, but my next visit isn't until April 4. But...i shouldn't complain. I'm now healthy and live, so what's one lil pill to worry about? LOL.

Are you on FB? There's a group called Liver Transplant Patients, i believe. If you haven't already, you should join!
