In addition, the only pain medication he's taking is Tylenol. "He's recovering just as well as transplant recipients half of his age," says Caicedo.

He comments, "I'm very thankful to the doctors for helping me get to this point. I may be 84, but I feel like a young man and I have much left that I want to accomplish."
