Lynn, I think the testing will be very similar to what my husband went thru in July in his evaluation for a kidney transplant. They have told me CT of the abdomen, pelvic area; echo cardiogram, ekg, chest xray, blood work, urinalysis and another urinalysis tests that takes about 2 12 hours to see how quickly your kidneys process I think. I will also meet with the same assortment of team members as recipients–nephrologist, donor nurse, dietiician, social worker, pharmacist, surgeon, etc.

@fauneconner – Thank you so much for sharing both your experiences! I have been wondering what my future held and figured I will just have to be patient and wait until I meet with the transplant team. I have PKD and am wondering if that is why your husband needs a transplant. No need to answer that question if you prefer not to. Best of luck!
