That Scar Remains

“Though it’s been a while now
I can still feel so much pain
Like a knife that cuts you the wound heals
But the scar, that scar remains”

~ Poison, Every Rose Has Its Thorn

Throw Your Soul

“Throw your soul through every open door
Count your blessings to find what you look for
Turned my sorrow into treasured gold
You pay me back in kind and reap just what you sow”

Scars Are Souvenirs

“Scars are souvenirs you never lose, the past is never far
And did you lose yourself way out there?
Did you get to be a star?
Don’t make you sad to know that life is more than who you are?”

~ The Goo Goo Dolls, Name

weight training with high protein in take

Hi,

I had my kidney transplant in Dec 2016, in the past 2 months I have been weight training 4 days a week and increased my protein intake. my last creatinine test went up from 1.2 to 1.5, not sure if it is related to the excessive training and high protein diet. I have a repeat test this week and plan not workout and cut down on protein two days before the test, hope creatinine levels will drop to normal.

Has anyone had a similar experience.

Hi friends, So I had a kidney & a liver transplant about two months ago. Everything is good :) and I am so thankful!! I am so happy!! I just started noticing like 3 weeks ago that my hair is thinner, and it is actually falling out a lot.

mainly from the top, I am a girl with bangs and now I barely have any! I have like 3 bald spots or even more :o I just want to know what could be causing this and how long will it last?? What can I do to fix it? My stomach is also bloated, mainly where my liver is

the kidney cite not as much. it wasn't like this like 3 weeks ago. . . will it go away? I am taking prograf 8mg twice a day, cellcept 500 mg twice a day, prednisone 4 mg once a day, . .

Cellcept and fatigue?

Initially I was only taking Prograf, but after a quick rejection episode, I was put on Prograf and Cellcept. I really feel more fatigued and am curious if anyone else has an issue. Thoughts???
