It is not the place of any medical professional to tell you how long you have to live. As you say, already, you've beat the odds, and everything like this occurs for a reason.

There is a natural remedy you may want to try for the liver toxicity. It's an herb called milk thistle. It is not a drug and you can get it at the health food store or online. Maybe it will help, or perhaps not...but it can't hurt. It is simply a natural way of removing some toxins from the liver.
What kind of support system do you have?
Do you go to transplant survivor support groups of any kind?
Good luck to you and I do hope this helps in some way.
You're very welcome, and I'm glad to hear you have a support system.
Never give up. My prayers are with you.
