Hello, I should be receiving a call soon to schedule an appointment for a week-long transplant evaluation. Would anyone share any advice that they might have from their experience with this? With my physical limitations from my paraplegia, I am concerned about some of the physical aspects, especially. The hepatologist that we met with this past week suggested that I should be prepared for some resistance from a couple of the surgeons because of post-transplant “healing challenges” of a couple of paraplegic transplant recipients. One of my friends that was accompanying me asked what that meant exactly? The doctor replied that, “Well, they both died.”. I would have to agree that is a challenge to healing. lol… Anyway, I intend to be as strong and committed as possible going in, but would sure appreciate any feedback on the evaluation as well as immediately after transplant.
Thank you in advance,
