    I'm interested in other people's experiences. I keep worrying that my islet transplant is failing and I wonder how common that is.

    Hi mlm, how is your transplant going? Can you share some of your overall experiences regarding the procedure, anti-rejectionary meds, quality of life etc. My specialist is considering recommending me for a transplant. Initially I was ecstatic at the news, but having read up on it, I'm now more sort of cautiously optimistic. Would be great to hear firsthand from someone who has been thru it, cheers.
