Hi fellow transplant buddy!

I get to say my liver is 57, while I'm 28. People think that I'm saying I'm an alcoholic when really my aunt was my living donor.

Do they not do the Mercedes incision anymore?

Is the Cetaphil used as imitation semen? I've always thought it looks like it, wondered if they ever just used that in place of it.

Hi Amanda!

I have a very similar story to yours, at least involving weird illness and transplant at a young age. I was also born in 1990! I had a 7lb tumor removed from my liver at 16 and also have a road map abdomen. My aunt was my living liver donor at 19.

How's your current kidney doing? Are you still on prograf or are you on rapamune/myfortic? (I only have experience in liver, hopefully you're still not stuck on Prednisone!)

If you ever want to talk with a fellow lady who's gone through very similar issues (and is currently dealing with ovarian cysts and all that crap) feel free to PM me. I think we could be friends!

Thanks! It is now pearly pink/white. Still can't feel much around the site though. I'm doing well though. Got to live past 19, fell in love, moved to Alaska and married an Eskimo. Lost my cat allergy and now we have 3 cat babies! Im employed at the same company my husband works at so we get to go to work together and have lunch breaks together. I'm now a happy and relatively healthy 28 year old. Yay!

I knew it! Probably is nice to just get face soap/lotion instead of semen on your face, especially since they'll have makeup to take off after the shoot anyways.
