Discharged yesterday 24 days post LDLT from my brother. Experienced just about every complication except hepatic artery thrombosis (severe ACR, sepsis, multiple ileus events, AKI…) and my body is now barely recognizable. Went 4 years from incidental diagnosis to ESLD.
Has anyone dealt with persistent ascites after transplant? My team is sticking to small for size and complication related nutritional deficits to explain it, but at this point it is my major barrier to gaining strength and I’ve read articles on portal/systemic pressure ratios remaining off after transplant until an intervention like splenic embolization is performed.
