what to do

hi doc
you have answered many questions fort me thankyou but this is the big one since being diagnosed  meld 24 listed the doc i go to has put many restrictions on my life to the point my wife left me and said she couldnt do it anymore they wanted me have someone with me at all times they constantly wanted to see more than one member of my support system i told them people have to work i cant have someone with me every minuite of every day I have to admitt I did have a problem with encepholopathy being hospitalized  a few times a month but I did some thing right
because this year my meld dropped to under 14 but they still want to put all these restrictions on my life are all transplant hospitals like this im active on the list then im not active becausenow im alone with a lower meld and no wife maybe you can point me in a new direction they always told me I didnt have a common blood type  B

transplant centers definitely differ as to their recommendations.  the MELD decreasing is a good thing.  Sometimes it remains possible to get transplanted at a low MELD score with a B blood type.
