Well, Arrived home from Birmingham QE last night after about 2 weeks since transplant. Thankfully, the coordinator was able to give me very basic details of my donor/benefactor/hero, I feel so humbled.
All went well, a decent 5 hour operation and now the ultrasound couldn't be better, there was a time when expected early rejection required some alteration in the meds but that was soon sorted.
Kidneys are running a bit dry so I have to keep forcing a water down.
Having a little trouble going for a wee since catheter removed but that's getting better.
In a hell of a lot of pain when stab drain gets blocked, walking around and gentle massage helps but of course if at night it's worse.
So overall, Things ain't so bad and I feel so lucky and happy. Pam, the boys and my great friends and ex colleagues are doing a marvellous job of supporting me.,and thank you so much for your kind words of support, you guys are a superb bunch.
Heard Helen Sharman (the astronaut) on the radio saying how insignificant we all are... That is soo wrong, we are all significant beyond belief especially now when I think of those who have died and selflessly enabled others (like many of us here) to live once again.
Much love and best wishes to all you guys.
