Hi, I'm Amber. I had a liver transplant in 1989 when i was 6 years old. i was diagnosed with neo- natal hepatitis. I walked out of the hospital 12 day after surgery and was able to come back to my home state a month and a half after transplant i haven't had many problems with the exception of a few rejection episodes that were able to be controlled by large doses of prednisone... I have been doing pretty well considering the side effects from the meds also....

Thank's for your post, it is very uplifting to hear how well you are doing. The rejection issues you have had are normal according to what I have been told. So, you are doing very well. Do you have any tips you would like to share with us? I would love to hear more about you.
