Life on the waiting list
Is there life after an organ transplant ?
Whatever your age, your condition, your nationality, etc., we want to hear your story.Every experience is unique and difficult to communicate. When you tell your story, you give other people courage or simply a bit of advice, but you also give hope to other people who have had transplant therapy or who are waiting for a transplant. You can show others how you can live an ordinary life while on the waiting list and give your testimony to encourage others to learn for the second time (or perhaps for the first time) what it means to be alive.
There are of course better things in life one may wish for than to be on a waiting list for a transplant. While you're waiting you receive lots of information, mainly of a medical nature: how you'll feel afterwards, what you can do (or can't do), etc. But there are so many questions that remain unanswered. You can in fact get this information from the patients who have been through transplantation.
But who are they and how can you contact them? Maybe this forum can help. Patients have been asked to give their testimony on certain questions that are important after transplantation. This is an open forum. Other testimonies are welcome, other matters can be discussed, and perhaps all this will throw up some good ideas.
And if you have any ideas that might improve this forum, we'd like to hear your comments. After all, nobody's perfect.
Happy reading !
