Car Adapter for Stickman Hardcase heater

"Thanks for the update. Sounds pretty encouraging, as far as the world of kidney issues goes. I did the 4x daily PD treatment for 6 yrs., but it just becomes the new normal, and the HUGE benefit of PD is no hospital visits. Just do it at home, easy…"

"Hi Salvatore, I read an earlier posting of yours where you stated your creatinine was creeping up to 280. If it's any comfort, mine was 3x that before dialysis, and while on dialysis for six years, was around the  950-1000 mark."

Luck with donors?

Posted on July 24, 2014 at 9:31 15 Comments

Hi all,

Just curious about other's experience with the donor testing process, as far as frequency of donors that are actually accepted. Five years ago I had five donors lined up to be tested. All of them proceeded with testing.

This week, my last potential donor was excluded. Five up..five down. Rats.

It would appear that nobody's as healthy as they think they are.

Anyone else finding it a challenge to get a potential donor through the hoops?
