Congratulations! I think you'll be feeling better soon. The operation and all the drugs take a toll. I don't know how bad off you were before the transplant, but that condition takes a while to come back from.

I was having high pulmonary blood pressure troubles before getting put on the waiting list, so I had a picc line running in Milrinone and a wearable infusion pump. Also had a lot of fluid retention and leg swelling complete with open wounds that wouldn't heal. After the transplant I was feeling better before going home. Did get a scare though, two days after my EF had fallen from 55% to 35%. The doctors said this could happen and they thought it was from the heart reacting to the shock. But it returned to 55% a few days later.

BTW, that is really me on Facebook.

Which was really you on FB? Did you send me a friend request that I missed?

Hi! If you'll send me a PM on FB, I'll look for it and then accept a friend request - I don't know what name you sent it under.
