The Heart Transplant Support Group is designed to offer support and education to Barnes-Jewish Hospital heart transplant recipients, candidates and their families. By providing a forum for sharing information and experiences, the support group helps patients and those close to them better understand and cope with the issues and concerns associated with heart transplant.
The group is a mix of people in various stages of the transplant process so members learn first-hand about what to expect during the transplant experience. Group leaders, members and guest speakers explore the physical and emotional concerns that accompany heart transplant. Some common topics discussed at monthly meetings include:
- lifestyle changes caused by transplant
- financial concerns associated with transplant
- transplant surgery
- side effects of medications
- fear of organ rejection
