Post transplant life is wonderful and complicated....I've lived with the "trade offs" for almost 6 years now & I've been really blessed to have had very little health complications, but it's not always sunshine and butterflies. I have had to learn to deal with many of the symptoms of PTSD which kinda makes sense..I mean I did have a really traumatic last year of my "CF LIFE" which then almost ended abruptly, then I was cut in half major organ swap and a hellacious recovery. All that aside I wouldn't have it any other way.
I had my fears and reservations of going through with a transplant, the risks were scary, the chance of rejection and possibly being in the same situation within a couple years were fears I had. So I am relieved that those fears didn't come true :) however, I know of other very special people who faced those exact fears. It doesn't make their decision wrong, they were warriors who chose "life" and I believe that's never the wrong decision. I guess tonight and a lot of nights I think of all the people my transplant has bless me to get to know many are doing well, some I have had to say "good-bye" to or I like to think it's just "see ya later".
So anyone who may be reading this blog and is facing the decision of Organ Transplant...you have a tough decision that is YOURS alone to make & life post transplant can be AMAZING & complicated but for me every single second has been worth all of it.
