Last August I got my transplant, an almost new kidney and a pancreas. Yup, a shiny new pancreas. I had diabetes since I was 4, 25 years, and now no more! It's amazing.
I set a record for quickest release time for a kidney and pancreas transplant, normally people stay in hospital for 2 weeks or more, I was out before lunch on day 8 because I hate hospital so much.
I've now got a HUGE scar from just under my ribs to the top of my groin, the surgeon also took photos of my new organs and a great shot of me sliced open, brilliant pics.
I'm getting stronger, got my mojo back, drawing like crazy. Only downside is I have no immune system now and catch every bug going around. Other than that, I'm fan-bloody-tastic.
