We had the privilege of traveling to Pittsburgh, Pa. for our daughter's first liver transplant on June 30, 1985. Dr. Thomas Starzl had just moved from Denver, Co. to Pittsburgh.Dr. Starzl with head of the pediatric transplant at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. Dr. Fung was an associate of Dr. Starzl's, but was at the adult hospital, just up the hill, Presbyterian University Hospital. My daughter was diagnosed with a B-cell lymphoma in May, 1988, just 3 yrs. after her first liver transplant.We traveled back to Pittsburgh from Knoxville, Tn., to have protocal written for her treatment. She was in clinical trials with Pittsburgh Cancer Institute. She underwent an aggressive regimen of backing off the anti-rejection drug (cyclosporine), intense chemotherapy, and 10 rounds or radiation near the end of treatment.She went into remission, but the liver was destroyed. She had to go back on the re-transplant list in Jan.1989, and we flew back, air ambulance, to Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh.She would wait in the hospital until Feb.9, 1989, when a second donor organ became available. After numerous complications, we finally brought her home, at the age of 11 (she had her birthday in the hospital) in April/early May 1989. This 2nd transplant brought her through two more decades and one year.She had outgrown the pediatric practice, and we changed Dr.'s to Vanderbilt Medical Ctr., Nashville, Tn., which was closer to home. My husband had also undergone a life saving liver transplant in May 1999. He and Alicia had the same Doctor/Doctors at Vanderbilt Univ.Med.Ctr. Alicia had more complications and heart surgery, which bought her another year, before going back on the transplant list at Vanderbilt for a third liver transplant. We had a clinic visit on March 8, 2010 and had just left when we got the call that the transplant team was traveling to Memphis, Tn. to retrieve the donor organ. The surgery had to be done in two steps, a day or so apart. She was, after about 9 days, moved out of the Surgical ICU to the step-down ICU. Complications would develop and it was back to the operating room. She spent two weeks and 1 day on the ventilator in critical condition. We spent 2 1/2 months in the hospital and re-hab, and finally returned home at the end of June 2010. Alicia was 85 lbs. by this time, still on a wound-Vac, and left with a bile vistula that required constant nursing. We never lost hope that year, but we started looking for Dr. Fung. We found him at Cleveland Clinic, called and made an appointment. Alicia was so thrilled to get to finally meet him, after all of the good things we had heard about him through the years. Alicia had a stent in the portal vein to the liver, but needed another stint, which radiology Dr.'s at Cleveland Clinic were able to do. We drove to Nashville, Tn. and took a flight to see Dr. Fung. Alicia was regaining new found hope. Never, had we ever met a more compassionate professional. Dr. Fung even gave Alicia his cell phone number and told her to call him if she had any questions or problems with her stay there. I believe she called him once. She had a place in her incision that simply would not heal. Dr. Fung took a surgical kit, and removed some sutures that had been left. Immediately, that area began to heal! It had been giving us such issues.Dr. Fung arranged for Alicia to meet all the medical professionals that she needed to, while we were there.Our stay lasted a month, and she was in the hospital most of this time. Thank you Dr. Fung for your expertise, exceptional medical care and most of all compassion. Dr. Fung is an amazing physician, surgeon, and just remarkable person. We could never say enough good things about the outstanding care we received. Cleveland Clinic is blessed to have Dr. John Fung, as Chairman of Digestive Diseases. Thank you for all that you have done and continue to do for your patients.See MoreRead Less
