Sun, Mar 3 6:56pm · Waiting for a kidney transplant in Transplants

Yes I leave for Mayo on Wednesday surgery is scheduled for Friday morning as my sister is my donor ..my sisters all signed up to get tested and they sent them out blood test that they took to there doctor and had blood drawn and sent back to mayo .. from there is they were compatible my older sister was the first to send it back and she was the first sent to mayo for testing .. a three days of test and we found out before we left she was a match . And then it was my turn .. or ours actually to choose a date to have it done .. so we are scheduled March 8 2019 the 21 year of liver transplant !! So two miracles in one day .. so soon I can tell you how everything went but if you have an other questions .. it’s a pretty easy process.. but first they have to fill out the questionnaire.. step one .. Good luck !!

Hi was wondering how you we’re doing ? I’m going to be having my kidney transplant soon .. as we had talked before about having multiple transplants .. of my liver transplant was on 1998 and now kidneys on 2019 .. I was wondering with all you have been thru how are you doing today ? I know Transplant’s don’t last forever which is sad but I feel we can make our best effort to prove that wrong …I guess I’m quite nervous about my up coming kidney transplant.. it’s not so much the transplant I guess my biggest fear is how long is my liver going to hold out even after I get a new kidney .. I guess I’m just talking out my fears ..

That is so good to know that they have figured out away to help slow that down .. I’m sure over the last 21 years there have been a lot of discoveries in treatment . So happy it worked for you .. good for others to know out there also .. ❤️

They monitor it and every year the creatine level and gift clearance got worse by a few points but after 20 years the clearance had gotten real bad ..so it’s all about the numbers .. but I think now more then back then when I had my liver transplant I was on high doses of prograf and imuran and prednisone .. today I don’t think they start you and leave you on such high doses..they tapered them down to 1/4 of what o was taking and I’m good with that but it was to late on my kidneys .. so we all have to monitor our own blood test also .. we know our bodies more then anyone and if something doesn’t feel right ask and get checked .. all in all I think if you watch your creatine level it will go up but point that out to the doctors or ask ..I would like to thank everyone for all the messages and advice and tips so greatly appreciated..
Thank you Rose

Thank you that is kind what I thought .. being that it’s my second transplant and I’m only 53 I was kinda thinking 6 months at most .. but I also work a swing shift of 12 hour shifts that rotate day and night … so yea I know it will fake time to get my body and mind back into shape for that !! Thank you so much 😊❤️
