Where did you hear about Transplant Friends?
I was invited.
Are You Male or Female?
Female
Share - which illness led up to you needing a transplant?
I dealt with heart issues for almost 24 years years prior to my tx. The electrical part of the old heart was not good. I went through transplant evaluation in 2005 & was told I was too healthy. Three years, two ICD's (which is like a pacemaker with a defibrillator built in)& using oxygen to help me breath, I went into heart failure again & found out how much worse I could feel. The diagnosis then was idiopathic cardiomyopathy. The old heart had had enough by then and was failing rapidly. Once put on the tx list, I only waited 4 & 1/2 days for my new heart. That is how critical I was. I am very thankful every day to be here & feeling good.
Which Organ(s) did you receive? If you are on the waiting list, please share.
I received a new heart.
Drugs, vitamins, favorite foods
Cellcept, Prograf, Protonix, Fosamax, Pravachol, Aspirin & lots of vitamins & supplements
How many years have you had your Transplant for?
It's been three years & 5 months!
I am Interested in Transplant Friends because...
It sounds like a good place to share stories, information and support with others who have had similar experiences. Every one has a story to share.
Which Transplant Center has or will perform your life saving surgery?
UCLA Medical Center, Los Angeles, California
Share how your transplant experience changed your life?
I can live again! Before I was in survival mode only. I have even discovered a new hobby of creating art landscapes out of fabric! I am probably in better physical shape now than I have been in years as well.
