Share whatever information you want us to know about you
I'm 64.I inherited PKD from my father's side of the family, I found out in 1995 that I had PKD, in 2008 I went on PD, I had to wait 7 1/2 years on PD to get a kidney transplant.My kidney came from a deceased donor, a middle-aged male. I refer to my kidney as he.I had a sleepy kidney, it took him > 2weeks to wake up.I feel 25 years younger and I am so happy to wake up every day to a "free" existence without being tethered to a dialysis machine and illness.
