Hi - I am so happy to have found this website! I just went on the Liver Transplant list in December, primarily for severe side effects from PBC (though my numbers seem to be declining pretty consistently as well.)
Though I have an amazingly supportive family, friends and colleagues - I have never in my life felt so disconnected because no one really knows the transplant world. Finding this website has been such a relief (now...can you find a way to stop the horrible itching!!!
Looking forward to learning and laughing and healing with this group!!!

Welcome, I didn't find this site until three months after my surgery as a live donor. It is an incredible resource with a lot of very caring and helpful people.

Welcome to our fantastic family! I am a heart transplant patient and don't know much about livers but there are a lot of people here that do. But we all understand, have been through or are waiting or even better have been donors. So what ever you are looking for you will find answers, support, laughter, tears, information, compassion....you want it it's here. Glad to have you with us and look forward to hearing more about you.

Welcome to this community which I have found to provide me with plenty of laughs, encouragement, and knowledge, and I hope you may be blessed by it as I have been so very much blessed. I wish I had found the group when I was on the waiting list but I did not find it until after my transplant surgery. I got a liver as part of my multivisceral transplant. I hope you may not have to wait long. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Many hugs.

Welcome home Funny girl - it's great to have you with us. As Bobbiejo has said she has had a liver transplant and in addition she belongs to the liver forum on this site.
I am sure if you visit there you will have a lot of your questions answered.
God Bless and take good care.

Hi Funny Girl and welcome to TransplantBuddies. Great place, great people. Can I ask if you also blog as "FunnyGirl"? I follow a liver blogger with that name.
Glad you are here, DAP

Hi DAP! No, I don't do any blogging...yet. I have had friends recommend that I create one, but as I am still working fulltime (though doing a lot more from home these days), and I have two teenagers, I just don't have the time.
