I’m expecting a transplant any day now, and I’m hoping to get some shared experience and maybe a few pointers.
Part of me is nervous about the big surgery, part of me is excited that there’s a chance I will go back to “normal.”
What are some things that worked for you after transplant? What didn’t? Should I push myself right away, or baby myself until I get some time under my belt?
I’m a 36 year old male with a wonderful wife who supports me and a 3 year old son who motivates me. My son is my world, so I’m eager to get back to him ASAP, but I’m nervous about him being in public daycare, all the germs he’s exposed to, and me being immunosuppressed. When will my immune system be strong enough to allow me to spend more time with him?
Thanks in advance for your help and sorry experiences!
