A new discussion board experience is coming this September!
After 10 years, we're upgrading our discussion board to a new modern system. The new forum will be easier to use, mobile-friendly and loaded with new features! We'll be taking all of the existing posts and users over to the new board, you won't have to do anything. If you have any questions, we've started a thread here to discuss.

I am celebrating 7 1/2 years of good health, diagnosed Feb. 2006, Treated Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.
I was diagnosed with Cholangiocarcinoma in Minneapolis Feb. 2006, I was told there is no cure. The following weekend I was contacted by my primary doctor who told me that Mayo has a research protocol , and asked if I would like to go.
I visited the Mayo that week and started Chemo and Radiation fairly quickly, I went through at least 100 tests and in April I was told I was a candidate for the protocol and placed on the transplant list.
I was very sick, I had lost 35lbs, weighing 120lbs. and very yellow, doctors feared I was not strong enough to do the surgery. On May 25th a liver came and I underwent the transplant. The next morning my eyes were white.
My recovery seemed to take forever and I had a few issues, I was in the hospital a little over a month, I weighed 109lbs when I left the Hospital. I walked and exercised every day, went back to work part-time in August, full time in September 2006.
I feel so blesed
