Transplant period: November 29, 2021 – December 20, 2021
Number of transplants: 3
Transplant provider: Luke’s Ashiya Clinic
Q1. WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO UNDERGO INTESTINAL FLORA TRANSPLANTATION AT OUR INSTITUTE?
Because I wanted to ease the obsessiveness of autism as much as possible. Because he was a picky eater.
Q2. DID YOU RECEIVE SUFFICIENT EXPLANATION AND SUPPORT FROM THE MEDICAL INSTITUTION FROM THE TIME OF YOUR TRANSPLANT APPLICATION UNTIL AFTER THE TRANSPLANT WAS COMPLETED?
The doctors and staff at the medical institution warmly monitored the progress of the patient, and both he and his parents were reassured.
Q3. HOW HAVE YOUR SYMPTOMS CHANGED AFTER THE TRANSPLANT?
It’s easier to get instructions than it was before the transplant, and the eclipses are better than they were before the transplant.
Conversation and dialogue have increased, and interest in people, which had been strong with regard to objects, has increased. Interpersonal relationships, which used to be aggressive, have changed to friendly.
Q4. IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN THE INTESTINAL BACTERIA THAT BECAME YOUR FRIENDS THROUGH TRANSPLANTATION, PLEASE TELL US ABOUT ANY LIFESTYLE HABITS OR WAYS OF THINKING THAT YOU ARE TRYING TO MAINTAIN AFTER TRANSPLANTATION.
I try to cut back on wheat. I am careful about what I eat.
Q5. WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO THOSE WHO ARE GOING TO HAVE A TRANSPLANT OR ARE UNSURE ABOUT IT?
At first I was worried about how the transplant would change my life, but I am truly glad I did it. After the transplant, my emotional state improved and deteriorated in waves, but as a result, I was able to lead a positive life, and I would highly recommend it.
Q6. PLEASE GIVE A MESSAGE TO THE DONOR WHO PROVIDED THE STOOL FOR THE TRANSPLANT.
Thank you very much.
