What do you wish someone had told you before Transplant?
I came from a background of being different & sick all my life. So when "transplant" was mentioned to me, alongside the possibility of living a "normal life" afterwards, I honestly didn't realise what "transplant normal was".
I learned about the grapefruit early on, but that didn't phase me as I didn't like eating it anyway. I was also aware that contact sports were out of the question, again that was no problem for me.
But no one ever mentioned the medication side effects to me or the restrictions I would have to live with in regards to socialising.
I wish someone had explained the difference between Normal & Transplant Normal to me.
Is there something you wish you'd been told before your Transplant?
