Fri, Sep 13 8:32am · Post kidney transplant issues in Transplants

@lindajo I had my transplant 8 years ago. About a week or two after the transplant, I got very sick and was readmitted to the hospital. It turns out my ureter had failed. They placed a stent to drain the urine (the kidney was thankfully going strong), which stayed in place for about 3 months so that everything could calm down. I then had a repair where they attached my native ureter to my new kidney. It was quite a rare situation, but a success! 8 tears post and I’m still going strong!
I had a lot of depression during that ordeal and it took me long time to feel good again, but my care team was awesome, as was my family. Everyone’s recovery is different. I remember dragging myself in for labs one morning and in comes this young man, fit as a fiddle, saying he was a week post op! So full of energy and excitement! And then I remembered I’m at least 40 years older and that maybe in my 20s I would have bounded in too. We all do the best we can.
Good luck to your husband and prayers headed your way.

@cmael, I lost a bunch of hair after my transplant, too! I think by the end of the first year post, it was back to normal. Quite a shock when you’re used to having it thinned out a bit because you have so much hair! I celebrated 7 years yesterday and coincidentally I had a hair cut scheduled with a new hairdresser. She remarked how thick and full my hair was! I’m pretty sure yours will come back too.

Thanks Rosemary. I do see a dermatologist every six months. She said she can remove them, but they will likely come back. I was just wondering if this is a transplant thing, which I suspect it is, or if it’s just another weird thing I’m stuck with. I don’t know why I feel the need to differentiate these things!

Hi! I keep finding little warts on my arms, legs, chest etc. I’m 5 1/2 years post kidney transplant and just started getting them. Anyone else have this problem?
