Woman saved with fastest liver transplant in history after she’s given just 48 hours to live
Liesl Johncock, 20, was suffering total liver failure and was told by doctors that she had only 48 hours to live. She was placed on the transplant waiting list but with an average waiting time of 95 days for a donor liver, her chances of survival seemed slim.
However, a new organ was sourced only two hours later – and by the following morning, the life-saving operation was completed. Making it the fastest found and transplanted organ in medical history.
Yesterday, Liesl told of her surprise and relief at waking up to discover she had a new liver and her life had been saved.
Her father had this to say: ‘I cannot thank the staff and surgeons at the hospital more – I owe them everything.’
what ever happens in life we should always remember to live life to the fullest
