Fri, Jan 11 8:39pm · Sweats after a kidney transplant in Transplants

Well, I’ve had hot flashes for 10 years now…but I am 65 years old! Now that you mention it though, I think they are a little worse since the kidney donation. I do take Prempro every other day to lessen the effects.

I feel the same way, though I donated to my husband…but I'd surely do it again. It's not as rough as one might think if you are a healthy donor. I am 65 – and still came through with flying colors!

Thanks, he had the infusions as well a few weeks out. But now at 6 mos. out, they are trying other things. His function went from 40% to 20% in 6 weeks…so we are sure hoping for a turnaround soon.

I think it’s smart to leave the worrying to our wonderful Mayo doctors- as they are good “detectives”, and hopefully will solve the mystery. My husband’s symptoms are unusual fatigue and some muscle aches. The biopsy showed some inflammation in his kidney, but they also wanted to tweak the cholesterol and blood pressure meds. It’s only been a few days…so we are still waiting to see improvement.

Holiday greetings to all of you as well! This group really helped me through my donation journey. I just passed my six month follow up check up with flying colors. My husband (and recipient) is experiencing rejection issues however, and that is very stressful. The Mayo doctors are adjusting his meds, and we pray that the changes will help. Thanks for all the support these last 6 months!

Are there support groups in the Twin Cities? I donated June 26th, and love the online discussions, but in person sure would be great.

Thanks! Every hour today is better. I think I’ll go home just before dinner.
