Hello,
My husband Jerry had a kidney, pancreas transplant on May 15 2009.
On May 16 2009 they had to remove the pancreas because it never woke up.
He was in the ICU for a week. He was not doing to well he finally was moved to the main floor which he stayed for almost 2 weeks. When he did get home he had a long recovery. He was off work for almost 6 months. It took him a year and half to finally feel like himself again. He had a lot of depression and trauma from the surgery. This was the first time he has any kind of surgery. After 6 months of his Kidney transplant he was put on the pancreas transplant list. He continued to work thru the waiting process but while waiting He and I went thru a Flood on Feb 29 2011 which our home and business was hit by the flood. On this day my mother went in to ICU and he was also called for his transplant, but it did not work out, he has been called 9 times since then but there has been always something wrong with the donors pancreas. However on July 5 2011 he was called at 3 o clock in the morning and was told to head for the hospital that he was getting transplanted that evening. He was transplanted at 4:55 that evening everything went really well.
However there is quit a bit of medical cost in having this done. And he will be off of work for another 5-6 months. So if you feel like you could help us out it would be appreciated and God Bless.
