Steve Jobs had liver transplant

I’m no doctor and I don’t play one on TV, but you don’t get a liver transplant unless you are going to die wihtout one.

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.

Mr. Jobs didn’t respond to an email requesting comment. “Steve continues to look forward to returning at the end of June, and there’s nothing further to say,” said Apple spokeswoman Katie Cotton.

Why the secrecy?  This is something shareholders deserved to know.

      I would guess his cancer spread to his liver. Transplants for liver cancer are not proven to be a cure.

      My mom’s cousin had a pancreas transplant.

      Type I Diabetic who was diagnosed in the early 1950’s. This was about 10 years ago.

      • Remember Mickey Mantle’s liver transplant? Jumped to the head of the line with his ruined liver due to chronic alcholism & Hep C and when he had the surgery, they found that he had liver cancer. He got his liver, but died of the cancer which had spread.
