If you are listed for transplant or a recipient than just like me, you probably look for stories of survival post transplant. My son just celebrated 5 years post heart and double lung transplant and may that give you some personal hope! He has battled rejection and a few other issues but has pushed through and thank God, is doing well.
In all honesty, transplant is trading one serious health concern for another. It takes a lot of on-going medical care, advocacy and challenges to stay well but personally, it has been worth it.
If you are 5 years or longer post transplant, share your experiences and help give others hope for the future.
What a huge milestone and celebration, Colleen! Congrats to your son and your family on his 5 year anniversary! You and your experience definitely will help others who may need a transplant at some time.
Such inspiring stories and I am enjoying learning from you about your experiences as well.
As you mention, I am sure post-transplant keeps y’all just as busy with appointments, etc..
