I saw my doctor today and he thought I was doing so well he took me off Wellbutrin so I am now not an any anti-depressants. He also said I don't have to see him again unless I feel I need to. One less med is fine with me. I feel so much better since the transplant even though things are not perfect. I am having trouble with my Prograf levels, which could cause rejection, and my white blood cell count is very low, which could cause infection. My doctor is on top of it and adjusted my doses, I am wearing a mask again in public and have to stay out of the ocean for a while. Better safe than sorry.

It is nice to find joy in life again!

Hi Miocean,

Losing the Wellbutrin is goooood news! Hopefully they'll get the Prograf and white cell count sorted out real soon.
