Hi everyone I have been on dialysis since November 2016. I had one kidney transplant in 2010 which failed. I live in thunder bay
Hi everyone. New to the site, and trying to find out some information and support. My husband has reached stage 4 of Kidney Disease from his Alports Syndrome.Question:Why do we have to wait to the point of dialysis or 10%, before a transplant. Can I not just give him one of my kidneys now? while he's still fairly healthy?
I thought I would attempt to answer a couple of the questions...
Its likely best to ask the doctors but this link explains the compatibility including the positive and negative parts.
Everyone is different after hemo in centre but I personally was exhausted after each run.
I am a 34 year old on dialysis and work full time for an Engineering company. I am in the final stages of booking a transplant with my cousin. I have 2 children (14 year old girl Chanel and 4 year old boy Nathan). I have another one due in January so my life is full of surprises. I do dialysis at home to allow me freedom in my everyday life. I love nocturnal dialysis and have lots of tips and info if anyone wants to talk about it. Ask me anything anytime!
