Aug 27, 2017 · Warts post transplant in Transplants

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.

Aug 22, 2017 · Kidney recipients who are EMT/FireFighters in Transplants

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

Thank you for all the responses.

The Mayo Clinic is my transplant center. However after 5 years, I dont get annual check ups anymore, but if course do see my nephro every six months. I dont think he would really know.

Mar 9, 2017 · Use of essential oils for transplant patients in Transplants

Hi!

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.

Thanks.
