Three years after my liver transplant and small-bowel obstruction operation, I am back to my normal self – a tough old boy!
Went sky-diving on my 60th birthday to celebrate life and to remember my donor. Back to scuba diving, mountain climbing and all other activities that I used to do.
I am living my life in fullest for the second time.
I hope you can see that a full recovery IS possible.
Of course I do now have restrictions on my life. I will have to take anti-rejection
medication for the rest of my life. This causes it's own problems as I am now more
likely to develop cancer and must be careful to avoid too much sun exposure.
I will have to forsake travel to many exotic places, such as Cambodia, Peru and much of Africa.
However I can still enjoy a fantastic life.
None of which would have been possible without the GIFT OF LIFE I received from my unknown donor.
To those you are now on the waiting list, “Never, ever, give up!”, one day, you will get better!
