@fiesty76, Yes I do work at Mayo Clinic (9 years!). I work in Marketing and run their advocate program called Mayo Clinic Champions. It's to help those who've been to Mayo Clinic amplify their word of mouth about their experience. I really enjoy the work. Yes, COVID-19 has shifted our work and we're all learning a lot of new things, like getting to moderate for this wonderful Kidney & Bladder group.
@australia – We're always up for entertainment. And you certainly could teach everyone a thing or two about advocating for yourself as a patient.
@gingerw – it sounds like you have a good system down for following your healthy kidney diet and staying safe. What's the go-to snack for these trips?
@kamama94 – So glad to hear from you. So sorry about your pain and life-upending. Change is tough, especially when it comes with pain. I'm glad that you are still staying involved but definitely do what you need to to take care of yourself!
I'm wondering if anyone else has had pre-dialysis vascular surgery? What was the recovery like?
