I was released from the hospital on January 16, 2008. I have been doing very well since the transplant, except for when I injured my ribs and my liver function tests jumped. They thought I was going into rejection, but it turned out just to be from the injury and the Hepatitis C. I've had two liver biopsies on my new liver since transplant. The first was to determine if the hepatitis C was affecting my new liver. I have inflammation in the new liver, but no damage. The second biopsy was to check to see if I was going into rejection. That second biopsy caused my red blood cell count to drop 4 points. If it dropped any further, they would have had to keep me over night. I've been going for blood tests every week since the transplant and will continue to have blood tests done for the rest of my life, especially for the next year while I am on treatment. Of course, I have to take anti rejection drugs for the rest of my life.
