Thank you guys for keeping in touch. I made 9 months alive since the transplant as of Feb. 11th. Other than the swelling in my face and slight fluid retention, You would not know that i had a double lung transplant unless I told you! LOL well let me take that back. If you saw me taking my medicine, you might have a clue that somethings up since i do take over 40 pills/capsules a day! it seems a bit much but ive learned to swallow 7-8 -9 at a time to minimize the production/shock factor of the whole process. I do take medicines such as prograff, prednisone, valcyte, cellcept..etc.
