I am one year post transplant (liver) and have stomach pain and insomnia and joint pain. I figure these are most likely side effects ofmeds. Does this ever go away?

I celebrated my 2 year anniversary of my liver transplant in April. However, in June of '12 I had to have emergency surgery for a perforated colon. During surgery, the docs found a small tumor. Went thru chemo for 10 months. I'm happy to say I'm doing well now. Would love to see if there's anyone who has had to deal with cancer after their transplant. Thanks to all for your input.

Susan, when I left the last comment, I noticed that you said something about insomnia. I would almost guarantee it is from the meds, most likely prednisone. How much do you take?  Or do you not take it? You have not had your transplant very long and if having a liver transplant is anything like having a kidney transplant, you may have several more adjustments ion your medications which should make sleeping much easier. Good luck to you. Remember, on this site as well as on the sister site, you have lots of support. If you have not joined it yet, you might consider it.
