    Welcome Lchristo. 3 years ago I was diagnosed with liver disease which, while I was in the early stages of having it looked at, turned into cancer. I also had Hepatitis C. With the new medication available today the HepC was taken care of quickly. The cancer was treated successfully with directed chemo but the doctors said that in order to totally remove chances for the cancer to return I should have a liver transplant. This I did and now, 3 years later, I'm in good health as a cancer survivor. You will go through a lot of changes with this now in your life and the best thing I can recommend for you is to find a way to trust your doctors and your God. There is life after cancer but it does change things completely. This is a good site for support while you travel this road and please try to look past the immediate troubles and know that you are not alone. I'll keep you in my prayers. Pat

    JValles - I had the same issue starting in 2015. I know what a life changing thing this is. Please know that the medical community is well versed on liver cancer issues and that you can survive this. I went through minor chemo and then had a liver transplant after the cirrossis turned into cancer. It's a big deal but now, 2 1/2 years after the transplant I'm healthy and back to life again. Having a positive attitude makes a huge difference in your recovery and my thoughts and prayers are with you.

    I had to Google MM. Until I was diagnosed with Liver Disease/Cancer I had no idea how many different types of it there is. When I was in Nashville for my transplant I talked to a lot of different people who were being treated and it seemed to me that bone marrow transplant patients had it rougher than any of the others. They were overall sicker and in Nashville longer than any others. Nothing like feeling special because of a major surgery and then going to a huge transplant center like Vanderbilt Hospital and being just one of many. My experience was a good as major surgery can get and I am back to whatever passes for normal these days. Good luck to you for continued good health with your MM.

      I can't imagine fighting two serious diagnoses simultaneously. I was all too familiar with MM, as my mom died of it in 1972. It's good that you feel like you're on sort of an even keel with a new normal. Thank you for your good wishes and I wish you continued good days ahead too!
