I was diagnosed in 2003 with HCV. Never did what everyone thinks about people with the desease. I spent 26 years in the USAF and as a flyer nowthat I see my medical records that I was never tested for liver enzymes etc. BOOM, Come 2003--HCV and as my doctor said I had it about 24 years+/-. It cost me my flying career and allot of anguish. I then in 2008 went from a 19 MELD to a 23 in 90 days. Surprisingly I was accepted into a transplant program at UAB in Birmingham, AL # 10 on the National list (A+blood type). Well its been 5 years this month. I am a lucky one. BUT the diabetes caused by the Prograf (rejection med) has done me in and I am worse with T2 Diabetes. I am 60, weigh 190/5'8" and in no way obese. I want to share this with you all. I want to be hopefull for all of you. I was lucky, but now in so much pain from T2D. I am here so I can tell my story while listening to all yours. God Bless.
