Yes, just got my new kidney and new lease on life October 27. Sat in on a good training with a nutritionist at Mayo where they talked about eating a balanced diet, still less protein, sodium and fatty sugar filled foods and follow a Mediterranean eating plan. My wife and I actually started a Mediterranean eating plan five months before my transplant and I lost 34lbs and still at that weight. So it’s going good. Do miss eating a big juicy rare steak so often though but it’s worth the trade. Owe to my amazing donor to be the best transplant recipient I can be.
