I feel great! It's a drastic change from life on dialysis. All the tiredness, muscle pain, etc. that I experienced disappeared right after the surgery. I feel like I've acquired super strength now.
Share whatever information you want us to know about you
I was diagnosed of Stage 3 or 4 IgA Nephropathy in August 2013. My condition was stable (at creatinine 2.6) for 4-5 months on Cellcept. Then it started declining rapidly and creatinine level reached 11 by April 2014 and I was on dialysis after that until my aunt gifted me a chance to have a new life on June 17th, 2014.
