Newbie to Medhelp

Just wanted to say hello.  I am 51 year old married female with Giant Cell hepatitis and ESLD.  I have been on the UNOS waiting list 21/2 years.  My meld fluctuates between 14-23, too low for transplant.  Am pursuing dual listing right now.

WELCOME to Medhelp!

It appears you have already taken all of the most important steps to getting a transplant.
Dual listing sounds like a good idea for your situation.

If we can help in any way let us know.
Keep us up to date with your situation.

I have been on the waiting list for about 3 years. I am dual listed. Currently my liver cancer's AFP which is over 1,000 is preventing me from getting a transplant. But I am fighting on and still hope to get a transplant in the next few months. My cancer exceptions give me a MELD score of 33. In June I will go to 35.

Best of luck to you with your dual listing!!!
