    Default Steve Jobs Had a Liver Transplant

    photo credit to fanpop.com

    The WSJ ran a story Saturday stating Jobs' leave of absence has apparently been surrounding a liver transplant.

    He should be returning to work in a limited capacity shortly, and seeing how things go. Meanwhile Tim Cook, Apple's COO and Steve's stand-in since January, may be stepping up to the plate even more.

    There's also some interesting news as to where he's been at these 6 months (Memphis?) and rumors as to why WSJ hasn't sourced their info (someone told and Steve doesn't know who).

    Steve Jobs, who has been on medical leave from Apple Inc. since January to treat an undisclosed medical condition, received a liver transplant in Tennessee about two months ago. The chief executive has been recovering well and is expected to return to work on schedule later this month, though he may work part-time initially.

    ah, so this was the cause of his pancreatic cancer. It has started to metastasize and take out some other organs.

    Liver transplant, ya, you have to have some serious money to one that fast.

    We don't know how long he was or was not on the transplant waiting list. If he was sick enough, he goes to the top of the list in a day.

    What we DON'T know, however, is why Jobs was able to be placed on the transplant list at all. One of the main disqualifiers for being placed on the transplant list is metastatic cancer; i.e. liver failure caused by pancreatic cancer, etc. Interesting that he was able to get around that fairly-set-in-stone rule.

    When you have no clue what you're talking about, you can unwittingly harm seriously a noble therapy like liver transplantation.
    He didn't have pancreatic cancer, or at least the one commonly known as such, but a variant that is relatively controllable and commonly metastasizing to the liver only (not other organs, otherwise the transplant is no longer indicated).
    You don't need any serious money to expedite anything. He was smart enough (nothing new, anyhow) to go to a place with high donor rate and higher chance of getting an organ earlier than in California or NY. Paying to get priority is both immoral and illegal, and I'm sure that Mr. Jobs is neither.
    We wish him a prompt recovery.

    PLEASE, stop spreading fallacious rumors regarding what you don't know and be more respectful with the health of others. These comments only throw garbage over an honorable profession and the health of thousands of people in the waiting list for liver transplantation.

    The fact that we have in this country a notoriously inequitable organ sharing system for liver transplantation doesn't mean that people are cheating to get those livers. If you can get listed in a transplant center where there are more organs than people awaiting for them, you'll get one way much sooner than if you are listed in a center where the demand for organs greatly surpasses their availability.

    Granted that this is an open forum where anybody has the freedom to express their opinion, but please realize that in doing so, you may be causing serious harm to others that might not know better than what they read in forums like this one.
