I had a kidney transplant in 2007 at Mayo in Rochester MN for PKD, and also had my native kidneys removed 1.5 years later. It’s a difficult surgery and recovery, but now I’m doing very well now. I’d be happy to answer any questions you have. Dr. Dean was my transplant surgeon, and Dr. Prieto did my kidney removal. Both of these surgeons are incredible. I wish there were no need for the immunosuppressants after surgery (and for the rest of your life), but the trade-off is worth it!
