Yes very exciting! My eldest brother donated to me. I’m only 36 but my long time friend Lupus Nephritis finally caught up to my kidneys. I’m down to 5mg on the Prednisone but hey haven’t mentioned removing it yet I’ve been on it since I was 14. There are about 3 medications they did mention removing over 3 months , 6 months and a year. Yeah I will definitely be discussing these hot flashes with the transplant team this week at my appointment. I’m in NY and it’s about 60 and still chilly. I don’t like the cold and my room is the coldest in the house.. but once I snuggle under the blanket I get warm. My skin is cold but I’m burning up it sounds insane! I do put cold rags in my body at night to try to help and I too keep a cold glass of water on my night stand as well.
I sure hope it adjusts soon it’s the last thing I need disrupting my sleep.
I don’t think they’ve created a treatment for hot flashes yet 😁.

@westlove718 Please keep me posted on what transplant says about our hot flashes.
By the way, I would love to be in the coldest room in the house around 60 degrees...
it sounds like heaven to this hot flash queen living in South Florida. I am so happy to hear that you had a living donor (your brother!) and it sounds like things are going really well except for the hot flashes. Also, make sure to discuss this with your gyno too since you are in early menopause it may not be related to dialysis or the transplant at all. Your flashes could be hormonal. It will be good to tell both docs the whole story to see what they think. You are definitely not alone when it comes to hot flashes! I had a full hysterectomy at 40 years old and my transplant two years ago.
