Thank you. I went to Colorado to spend it with my family. Special dinner, hugged my sister, who was my donor!

Hi Molly. Me too, mine aren’t the bumpy kind, can’t remember what the Mayo derm called them. I have them on my legs and arms. We burn them off with nox. A little bit painful and leaves a little scar. I’m on Prograf, Cell Cept, prednisone. And three other meds.
Best to you.
Eight years last Saturday
Thank you Colleen. They are wondering aboutthe recovery and/or capability of pursuing a career in fire fighting post transplant? He seems rather cavalier about everything and being at 8 years post transplant, and in very good health myself, I think hed be putting himself at risk for these professions. Any thoughts?
Hi! I have a friend who’s son is getting his dad’s kidney at the end of September. He’s in his early 20’s and intends on doing EMT/Fire Fighter training starting in January. Are there any transplant patients who are EMT/Fire Fighter son here who could provide any guidance or advice here? Thanks
I am curious about the use of essential oils when I have issues that might be helped by their use.
I had a living donor kidney transplant in August 2009. I am healthy and active, but do have the occassional ache, or pain, etc. I have ( self-diagnosed) plantar fasciitis, sore sometimes from a personal training session, occassional insomnia etc. Oh, I also have a “mild” case of valley fever (diagnosed at my 1 year post transplant anniversary).
I’m on the normal anti-rejection meds (prograf, cellcept, prednisone), plus itraconazole (for the valley fever, am allergic to fluconazole/diflucan).
I’m curious about others’ use of essential oils and whether it’s ok to use them.
Honoring the gift.
