Oct 31, 2018 · Still tired post kidney transplant in Transplants

Rosemary,
I am doing well. My kidney function is around 26 and fluctuates as does my
Creatinine. I found the article on weight gain helped a lot. I have gained about 7 pounds and don’t want to gain anymore. I realize it’s math. Food intake verses
exercise output. Also my hair is falling out. I’m taking biotin and using biotin
shampoo. I’m feeling more like myself every day. I’m working out at the gym
three days a week. This is helping me get my core strength back. I have my
4 month checkup in mid November.
Thank you for all your support.
Yes

I’m doing so much better. I had my transplant on July 23rd 2018 and feel very
Blessed. I have had ups and downs and even though it’s been 2 months an 2 weeks since my transplant- I still have days where I’m a little impatient.
I recently got over a bacterial infection deep in the tissue. It’s been a roller coaster. But I it’s all part of the path. I do give myself permission to take naps and I’ve hired a fitness coach to get some of my core strength back. I was very active up to three month before my transplant. Now my skin and muscles hang. I’m sure Gaining strength will help me. Thanks so much for your words

  • I am 50 days post transplant. I was transplanted with pediatric kidneys en bloc. I still have some pain near the bladder. And I still get tired. My GFR is 24 and my creatinine is 2.2-2.1.
    I know my little kidneys will grow. I was expecting a quicker recovery. Is it normal
    To be tired sometimes and have a lot of energy on other days?

I am waiting for a Kidney also. I have so much fatigue and like you are tired all the time. I have a partner but i have had no sex drive for two years. It is affecting my relationship. Some days are good most are days when I am so tired.

Thank you Rosemary,
My symptoms continue as I wait. I have insomnia now. It might be from the worry. My nephew was tested for Paired Donation a week ago. He hasn’t heard anything. I continue to wait as patiently as possible.

Thanks for inspiring story of you and your daughters’ Kidney experience. I am waiting for a donor and I enjoyed reading about your Blessing.

Thanks for your support and prayers. I’m not on dialysis. Some days I’m my normal self with a lot of energy. Some days all I do is sleep. Recently I’ve been having insomnia. Sometimes I don’t sleep for days.

Mar 15, 2018 · Kidney transplant in Transplants

Hi Rosemary,
It has been a ruff month. My Kidney percent is down to 8. I have nephew who is being assessed for Paired Donation the week after Easter. Two people who have applied to be my donor have been told that there is a donor in evaluation and they are on hold. However no one can tell me if the person being tested is for Paired Donation or Direct Donation.
