After being a comprehensive transplant patient for over seven years I got the most shocking news of my life. I have my review at Cedars-Sinai medical center after a fibrosis scan and test it was revealed that I no longer have cirrhosis of the liver. My daughters have always told me that cirrhosis is uncurable and progressive, that it doesn’t get better. I was always told that I will have to look out for and be very aware of cancerous growth’s and nodules and problems that will happen with my gallbladder kidneys and other organs because of my cirrhosis.
The reason I am a transplant patient is because cirrhosis patients almost always need transplant at some point or another or the other obvious logical option is they die. That is obviously why this news is so incredibly fantastic and opens up a whole new realm of possibilities for me. I never thought I would make it to 30 and now, who knows, I may make it to 50 6070. I may be a dad a husband or even a grandfather. The options are literally limitless. When I asked my doctor what this all means and how do you can tell me in layman terms how I should be reacting he said “I have never seen this before and a patient and you should be jumping for joy”.
