Do you stay in touch with your transplant surgeon???

I do, although I have more contact with my nephrologist at this time.

The surgeons have a more intense role around the actual procedure, but they are often savvy scientists too, so try to speak to them as well!

    My surgeon is amazing. I keep tabs on him, with the amazing clinical trials and research he's doing. Mostly I deal with my hepatologists now and also some of the fellows that were on my surgical team - all amazing surgeons who are also working on and publishing groundbreaking research.

    I haven't kept in contact with my transplant surgeon or even seen him at the hospital. This Thursday is my second in person appointment (I have had all virtual) with my doctor and coordinator (which is really weird to say), but I am really wanting to ask if he is free/around to say hello. Since transplant, I have listened to his podcast and read his book.

    I didn’t keep in touch with my transplant surgeon but I do keep tabs on all the amazing stuff he is doing.
