Experimental: Liver Transplant Patients
Participants will be provided physical activity walking instructions and asked to record their daily activity on an activity log.
Behavioral: Physical activity
Participants will be provided physical activity walking instructions and asked to record their daily activity on an activity log. Participants will be given the International Physical Activity Questionnaire and asked about their quality of life at baseline, at 6 weeks and at 4 months.
- Physical Activity Measured by the International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ) [ Time Frame: Baseline, 6 weeks ]The IPAQ calculates the metabolic equivalent (MET) score by asking participants the days and minutes exercised in three categories of intensity (vigorous, moderate, and walking) during the previous one week. The following formula is used to calculate the MET: MET=8(vigorous activity) (minutes) + 4 (moderate activity)(minutes) +3.3 (walking activity) (minutes).
- Quality of Life at Baseline, 6 Weeks, and 4 Months [ Time Frame: Baseline, 6 weeks, 4 months ]Participants reported their perceived quality of life using a scale 1 - 10, with 1 being the worst and 10 being the best.
- Number of Patients Who Document Their Physical Activity [ Time Frame: Baseline to 6 weeks, repeated measure at 4 months ]8 participants documented their physical activity at 6 weeks. 6 participants documented their physical activity at 4 months.
