In medicine: a transfer from one body or body part to another of an organ (liver, heart, lung, kidney, pancreas bowel) or tissue (hand, face, hair).

So transplants usually require drugs to ...Read more

You're not kidding?: LSD toxicity can lead to respiratory arrest, coma, emesis, hyperthermia, autonomic instability, and bleeding disorders.

You really can't: Most people have CMV on board already, from kissing adults as kids, or other young people as teens, or from transfused blood. CMV may flare and need to be treated when your immunity wanes on immunosuppression. And kissing your new grandkids (who may already have cmv) is very much worth the risk. Best wishes and good luck on this adventure -- glad you received a transplant. ...Read more
CMV prophylaxis: Most people in the community are CMV+ (had exposure in the past) but the virus does not cause problems if your immune system is functioning normally. However, if you are on anti-rejection meds to prevent organ rejection, CMV virus that used to be dormant in the body might get reactivated and make you sick.

This may be an auto-txp - somewhere else in your own body; or an allo-txp -from ...Read more
