Which Transplant Center has or will perform your life saving surgery?

Husband's surgery was done at UPMC.

Share how your transplant experience changed your life?

I'm not sure that it has. He says he is still tired all the time. His baseline creatinine is around 2.5, apart from not being on dialysis anymore, he doesn't appear much happier now.

  • Welcome to Transplant Friends Jane. How wonderful that your husband had you. I am so happy for both of you.

  • Hi Jane

    Welcome to Transplant Friends and congratulations to your spouse on receiving his Tx!  I'd be interested to hear what his Tx team thinks about his fatigue.  It can be caused by many issues.
