Hi Ginger, thanks for your reply.
My son was born with left multicystic kidney which is disappearing now. The right kidney got damaged by 3 UTI during his first 2 months after birth. Nobody in the family has kidney problems so we are assuming it is a congenital problem.
I don t really understand the concept of preemptice kidney transplant. Could you ease explain? Is it possible to do it during stage 3?
Thank you

@miprincipe A preemptive kidney transplant is done if the patient is able to qualify for a transplant, and there is a donor who matches. Most often, a donor is a living person, not a deceased donor. You might want to check with his medical team to see if this can be considered in your son's case.

If I may ask, what treatment is being done at the moment on your son! Do you know his kidney function level?
