Kidney infections as a child left my (OEM) kidneys damaged. Got 58 years out of them but started dialysis 3 years ago. Thanks to my wife and the University of Washington (Seattle USA) we did and exchange. Kidney transplant 4th of January 2017. YAHOOOOO

  • Going to travel overseas soon and wonder how you travel with all these meds. Do you take prescriptions with you or get them filled there? Any recommendations for carry-on/storage for bottles of pills? Just curious how you manage.

    I'm 4 mos post transplant, feeling very good

    , labs are great, life is pretty damn good :)

  • Greetings and Welcome to Transplants Friends, Patrick.  I live in Granite Falls and have family down in Kent area.

  • I will forever be in debt to my wife for volenteering  to donate a kidney. Via exchange we were able to help another couple as well. I feel wonderful as do all 4 people involved.
