Topic: Seen Dr. Javle today

He is very happy with the way my transplant worked out! I seem to be recovering great!! I feel good! He is giving me a month off chemo, and then when all the testing from my liver comes in, he will decide what chemo will be best to use! He said 4-6 more months depending on how my body does!
He also said he has been getting lots of emails and phone calls from patients about my transplant. I hope this opens the door for more people to get a new liver!
Other news--Brian and I need to get away from this hotel / apartment. So we are going to a beach that is about an hour away on Friday. Dr has no problem with us doing this. Just said for me to not get in the water and for me to use lots of SPF.
All liver functions and bilirubin are normal too! I might get my staples out this week!
