I just received an islet cell transplant at the U. of Minnesota and would like to share my experience with others who might be contemplating this process or are just curious. I have never attempted a blog before and would appreciate any input, or advise on how to do this most efficiently.
I am at day 10 post transplant now and am on about half of my dose of insulin already. At this point, the strategy is to still get insulin from my pump to give the islet cells time to acclimate inside my liver. It has been exciting from the beginning and I am hoping that the best is yet to come!
