Feb 5, 2019 · Post kidney transplant and recovery in Kidney & Bladder

been off for a while, going through surgery and all. thank you all for the support and encouragements I got from here. you are all the real MVPs, the moderators are very nice and helpful, very selfless people. My recovery is fast and I confident everything would be great. I was on home dialysis and using a very recent digital dialysis machine, anyone considering dialysis or knows someone in need of it should get to me. I pray we all have hope for a better health situation and strength to cope with any malaise. Seve

Jun 20, 2018 · Transplant list in Kidney & Bladder

I am a nurse and have been working in many countries around the world. My volunteer experience has taught me that we are privileged and should always give thanks. I have worked with kidney centers in which dialysis is the only option and available for the patient twice a week. The machines are few and the patients are many; If you miss the chance for your dialysis, you may not have that opportunity again until your next scheduled session. survival rate after being diagnosed is 20%. Transplant is out of the question; even though many people are willing to donate a kidney, the facilities can't test appropriately and carry out that operation. Its a hard world out the in West Africa. I am sharing this because we have the means to do dialysis at home, we have a transplant list which gives us hope for a new kidney one day, we have people who donate to some of us. Others in the world aren't so lucky. They have very little options and CKD becomes a life sentence in many cases. Please let us give back. Let us use this opportunity to reflect on the pain that we feel and consider using the means we have been blessed with to help those who have no hope. It is pitiful working for a hospital in a city of almost 300,000 people and many kidney patients with just two dialysis machines. whatever you do, give back. the little you have would help. If you can't give, by all means pray that everything works out for them. Thank you for reading.

May 27, 2018 · Feeling blessed, match for transplant in Transplants

Hello everyone
We have been looking for a donor for my kid brother forever. I was due to donate but it didn’t work out so we’ve been working so hard and tearing down barriers trying to look for a living donor since we know its best and has the greatest chances of working and turning his life around. Well the good news is we have three people standing by to donate and one possible match is already feasible. Some tests to be completed today but the doctor says everything looks good. This is a mighty blessing for us and it soothes the pain we’ve been through so far. I love sharing messages of hope because it enhances our resolve to fight on which is what we all need now; The other donors could help someone else in need. Please let us know if you share our situation. thank you
