Hi Cora, I found you through another post and also looked at the transplant buddies board for a sec. Looks like a lot of great information to check out. I'm going up tomorrow to a translant center in Salt Lake City for tests and an "orientation". I'm so scared and I guess kind of trying to come out of denial about teverything. My nephro wants me to get a pk translant soon. Thanks for being there for all of us!
Try not to get too freaked out about the whole thing (drugs, surgery, etc). While it's not a piece of cake, you will do fine and feel well at the end of it all. And there is something so liberating about a pancreas transplant - you have no idea.
