I couldn't decide where to post this question, so please do move it for me. Thank you.
Can anyone please tell me the steps involved in the process of heart transplant when the family/patient has been told there is a heart available with your name on it? I mean, what happens next?
And what happens the first post op day? And when do you expect the patient to wake up? AND (hopefully my last question) what signs of rejection might you see first?
OK, this is a kind of personal question. I have a distant relative who has had the surgery and it got me thinking that I don't know much about the process. My experience has been in OB/Peds.
I'm not looking for advice, just a little education beyond what I find on wikipedia. (even point me to good websites!)
Thank you! KJ~~
