Most transplant centers / hospitals will do the transplant at least a second time if the 1st one doesn't take... Some will even do three, but that's probably the extent of it... And this is all dependent on the donor willing to give a second / third time...
There is not much time available in between transplants (I believe), as you will be very suseptible to various infections...

I have a question, what happens if the transplant does not work? Is that the end of the road?? Sorry if thats a silly question, I am just feeling a little down/sad/worried.
Thanks again for all the info.
