Question advice getting a liver transplant

Hello to all. I really need some advice on liver transplant. I will be getting a liver transplant I think in the near future. Can anyone give me some advice on what to expect before procedure and after. All the information I can get will be so appreciated and helpful. I havent said yes to it yet. The doctor just told me a week ago I need one. have cirhossis from Hep-c. Have had all the side affects like verices ,portal hypertension.low low plattlets like 30,000 should be up around 200,000 or 300,000 anyway a lot of problems but I havent said yes to it yet. I would like to here from a liver transplant person themselves. oh also I am 50 yrs old male, help me by responding please. I would appreciate this so so much,

Re: advice getting a liver transplant

Take it. You got something to live for. Those are just numbers. My son is the only reason I am here. By the time you read this I hope you already approved the transplant.

Side effects can be headaches, once a great while vomit, mood swings, fatigue, and a little cold but that's managable. After the transplant just expect people treat you differently than before. I can't say how good or how bad. Just find something you enjoy the most and it will take you further than before.
