Share how your transplant experience changed your life?
Wow ! That's a really hard question. I think to begin I've never been more great full in my entire life. Right now I'm at home taking care of my new kidney, my daughter named him "Omar" getting adjusted to taking meds, side effects, my immune system is suppressed so I cannot be in crowds or around people who have had a virus or a cold , or not if they have been around someone with a virus or cold. I try to keep a good schedule so I make sure my meds and vitals are taken on time . I'm diligent about diet and as much excerise as I can tolerate. I'm alive!!! I have a great team at the clinic! And I will never be able to be great full enough for my deceased donor and his family.
Share whatever information you want us to know about you
I'm 55 years old I've been waiting 9 years for my kidney. I was pretty healthy " no dialysis since 2011, I have 4 grandchildren that I miss immensely. They are grade school age so being around them could have repercussions as of right now. I have very wonderful support friends and my daughter and son in law. I cannot ever be great full enough.
