My Story

My husband and I are 34 and live just outside of Edmonton, Alberta.  He was diagnosed with IGA Nephropathy when he was 16 years old and went into kidney failure at just 24.  He immediately went on peritoneal dialysis and when that wasn't working switched to Hemodialysis.  He received a kidney from his father just 3 days before his 25th birthday.  We got married one year later and have since had two boys together (age 6 & 1)!  June 12th this year it will be 10 years since the transplant.  The time has flown by!  Also since the transplant, my husband has developed other chronic conditions on top of his kidney disease.  He has venostasis in his legs and needs to wear compression stockings for the rest of his life and since being hospitalized for a week with the flu a few years ago, he now wheezes a lot, has a puffer, and gets bronchitis every time he catches a cold/flu.  Anyone else want to share their story?
