Hello there

My daughter was born with OTC and had a liver transplant in 2009 aged 6. The first year I regretted making the decision due to all the complications she had. Now, you would never know she had a transplant, when it comes to food she is like a little hoover and we've not had a hospital admission for almost two and a half years.

You have to do what is right for you and your child, get all the information that you need both the pros and the con to amaze the best informed decision that you can. I would also advise that should you go ahead with a transplant then prepare yourself for for child to get worse for a while before they get better. It may not happen but should it be prepared.

All the best
