Re: Liver cancer--transplant
Thank you, Happy Elf!! It was good to hear anything from anyone out there!
Our hospital is LDS hospital in SLC. Not a University hospital, but a teaching hospital, nevertheless. It has a good track record and we feel pretty confident in the surgeons---and we're through all the pre-testing and my husband's case will be presented next Tues (fingers crossed) for acceptance. So at this point there is nothing we can do but wait--my husband is an engineer and extremely into details, facts, stats, etc., so he is well informed. we also have a close friend who had a transplant 15 years ago (and he's 71 and doing great) so we do have the knowledge.just not the actual "ok, you're in".....that waiting period has to be the worst, just waiting for the call.
I am trying to take care of me, but I really don't know how to do that!! My husband is really stoic all day and at night he just needs me to baby him--but I still have kids at home, so I'm fussing somebody all day, everyday. Lucky for me I do have a very strong support network of friends, butother than the wife of the aforementioned transplatee, nobody can imagine what I'm feeling.
thanks, though, for your info. You said you were taken off the list--do you still expect to have a transplant at some point?
