Liver Transplant Surgery - How Best To Care for it Post Surgery?

Liver Transplant Surgery - How Best To Care for it Post Surgery?

A liver transplant surgery involves surgically substituting a problematic liver with a healthy liver from a different person. Usually, the healthy liver is taken from a person who has recently passed away. In some cases, a living person may also give away part of the liver. Usually, living donors are members of the family or someone who has a good blood type match. The liver regenerates lost tissues after a surgery; hence, the donor’s liver becomes normal within a few weeks of surgery.

You may require a liver transplant if your liver does not function optimally, owing to the below mentioned conditions:

  1. Cirrhosis: This is a chronic disease of the liver wherein, scar tissues replace healthy tissues in the liver, thus, not allowing the liver to function optimally.
  2. Metabolic disease: Disorders that modify the activity of the chemicals in the body
  3. Acute hepatic necrosis: This is a disorder that causes the healthy tissues in the liver to die
  4. Autoimmune disorders or liver cancer: Autoimmune disorders can cause healthy tissues in the liver to die as the immune system in the body starts attacking healthy tissues. Formation of malignant tumors in the liver can impair liver functioning.

Procedure
You have to undergo certain procedures before the surgery is conducted; a general health exam, imaging tests, blood tests and a psychological exam are conducted before the surgery. Based on the functioning of the liver and some other factors, your suitability for the transplant will be determined.
The procedure begins with general anesthesia, following which an incision is made in the abdomen. The liver is then removed and replaced with a healthy one. Once the procedure is completed, the surgeon closes the incision with stitches.

Aftercare
Once the procedure is done with, you are kept in the intensive care unit for a few days. The doctor will monitor your progress and put you on medications. After the recovery, you will have to undergo check-ups at regular intervals. You may also have to take medications such as immunosuppressant to prevent your immune system from attacking the liver. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

You can get rid of this trouble by including lots of fruits especially guava orange, whole grains (oats, daliya, brown rice) and vegetables in your diet. Only by consuming fibre the prob will not get solved consume 10-12 glasses of water a day. Avoid fast food and spicy items and maida products. Thanks.

You have not mentioned about having or not fever with this problem. If you are having fever with chills this may be due to acute infection in bladder called cystitis. In absence of fever or slight fever it can also be due to a small stone or calculus in the bladder near the neck of bladder irritating the sensitive area and causing frequency of micturition. Get a microscopic urine examination and for presence or absence of crystals. A ultra sonogram of abdomen for jidney ureter and bladder will be helpful in visualizing the calculus if of enough size to produce echo.

It is told that constipation is the cause of anal fissures but I have asked my family members, relative and friends that you never get constipation, they all told that one time they all got constipation but not anal fissures but if I get little hard stool then anal fissures occur. Why I get anal fissures if I get little hard stool while other do not get fissures if their stool becomes hard? LIS surgery fail to cure this problem, I want a lifetime cure from anal fissures because any time everyone can get hard stool and it is common matter but for this reason anal fissures is not common matter. Is it possible by any mode of treatment homeopathy, allopathy,ayurvedic?

His hemoglobin level is high but the bigger concern is his fatty liver. He needs to address his alcoholism immediately. If he is not willing it will become more difficult. But then he has no choice in this matter. He may be taken by force to the rehabilitation center after he is drunk or something like that if his wife gives her permission. The center themselves may come and pick him up. They will also address the high levels of hemoglobin as part of the treatment.
