Aug 27, 2018 · Liver and kidney transplant in Transplants

Hello everyone,

I am glad that I found people who can help others based on their experiences because that what matters the most. My dad had undergone a liver transplant long time ago in Mayo Clinic. Now he is suffering from kidney failure and he started dialysis from last week the dr. asked him to stay in the hospital until they organize everything. He has diabetes from 10 years and high blood pressure as a result of kidney failure.
However I have few concerns about his situation, he lost his appetite totally and while he is on dialysis I want to know what kind of food I can cook him to help him get better, we met a dietitian but she talked in general I need a plan to follow. We are also planning for kidney transplant, but dad has anti bodies that makes it difficult to find a match and he refused to take it from me or my siblings. Is there any related risk to affect the liver while doing the kidney transplant ? and can the anti bodies be treated? for those who went through a kidney transplant how are you doing and how are you maintaining a healthy kidney? for living donors how does it feel like ( we are trying to convince him to accept my kidney)? is there anyone who went through liver and kidney transplant I need to talk to you.

Sorry for all those questions am a bit lost and I need help.

Thank you. He is not suppose to know about it because it will hurt him more than being ill.

Yes he is. That's why its very hard for me to watch him suffering without doing anything.

My dad is suffering from kidney failure and he is refusing to take a kidney from me or any of my siblings because he doesn't want us to get hurt. But I can't see him going through dialysis and keep watching. I was thinking to donate my kidney as an anonymous donor so he doesn't feel guilty, I want him to live comfortably with it. What do you guys think?
