I am always asking where I stand on the transplant list and it's hard for doctors to tell me because it's squishy depending on bloodtype, etc. On Wednesday Dec 16th, Georgetown Hospital did 3 liver transplants. I was able to get some information:
Adult - Blood Type B
Adult - Blood Type O
Pediatric - Blood Type O
I also heard through the rumor mill that Eddie Island a transplant surgeon who I met with for my initial transplant meeting, has resigned. I don't know the details or where he will be going but a little saddened to hear. I know Dr Tom Fishbeine is still there and he's my #1 choice but I can't control
who I get.
The other surgeons are Dr. Matsumoto, Dr. Girlanda, Dr. Desai, Dr. Hawksworth, and Dr. Kroemer. I was told that they usually they will come in and speak with me prior to the surgery, so I will have a brief chance to meet the surgeon prior to the operation.
