Heart transplants

  • 1.  Heart transplants

    Posted 17 days ago
    Has anyone been through the screening process and successfully received a donor heart transplant? After a year with no improvement in CHF Stage IIIb, I've just been referred for a transplant, and I'm a combination of trepidatious and impatient about the whole thing. I'm hoping someone here has some experience.

    Hi Rachel I received a heart almost five years ago! You are hospitalized for about three days during which they do extensive blood work and other test to make sure you are healthy enough( cancer free etc ) to receive a new heart. If you have any other questions please email me!
