Michele replied to Chris's discussion 'Blood Sugar Testing post transplant' in the group Pancreas transplants
"I did in the beginning but I no longer do. My transplant team does not require it. In fact, they said the results could cause unnecessary stress and blood sugars can fluctuate. I still see my endocrinologist and every six months an A1C is performed.…"

Hi Michelle,

I have just been listed at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville Fl for a pancreas transplant. I have heard so many different stories about the wait times and false alarms etc. How long were you on the waiting list, and were you called to come for the transplant and then told to go home because it was not a good match? I just want to know how often these things occur, and the average "real" wait time, not just the average that all Dr's will give me...:):)

I was only on prednisone for a short period of time because of my pregnancy, but I was doing well on it; however, my lipase kept dropping too low which was making me very nervous, but I am back to my normal pills such as prograf and myfortic. I had "brittle diabetes" or unawareness of low blood sugars.

Hi I had a pancreas and I am now doing wonderful (a little bigger then before thanks to the new foods I have been introduced to) I had some complications in the beginning but I had overcome them and had a wonderful transplant doctor and team. My fiancee and I are hoping to start a family soon and we will be the first at the hospital.
