Shortly after my transplant I was given immunizations for hep A and B.
The reason hep C returns is that it lives in the blood, even though it damages the liver.

I know nothing about hep D.

I recently read the story of the oldest liver transplant recipient in the UK.
He was transplanted in 1975.

It really depends on the individual patient and his/her unique medical condition
pre and post transplant.

It was still wonderful to see his story - 39 years later.  Amazing!

David Crosby of Crosby, Stills & Nash had his transplant about 21 years ago and is still touring. I asked my gastro that question and he said that no one knows how long you will last after transplant as everyone is different. Eat healthy, cut out red meat, drink plenty of water to keep your kidneys healthy from all the meds. Good luck...
