Kidney transplant December 2017

TamekaS profile image

So after 8 long years of doing in Center hemo I finally got a kidney transplant on December 2nd of this year. I am so excited. Now I am having to do the complete opposite of what I was doing and used to as it pertains to my phosphorus. At the present time my phosphorus is 1.7 and they want it to be 2.5 to 4.7 and so they are forcing me to eat cheese,milk ,yogurt, Dairy things, but I'm struggling to get my numbers up. So they have given me a pill to try and help.

So I just want to encourage everyone who is waiting on their gift, stand on faith, stay positive, constant prayers... And always remember giving up is never an option. Don't give up and don't give in. Be blessed and take care.

Oh yes HE is... Thank u, I will.

I also haď a transplant in December (22nd). I had a lit of problems and as in hospital for 3 months. I am feeling so tired and unwell and I wondered how you are feeling 4 months on.

Well I had my transplant on the 2nd and was there till Dec 22nd, but went back twice. I was showing signs of rejection, my antibodies were really high in January, but by my 4 months, they have me the all clear, said no signs of rejection or infection and my antibody numbers came down alot. I down feel tired but not like I used to, able to work more hours at work, but I have has 2 colds and the flu since January to now. Got to go about in a December for my annual. And now I have to do blood once a month. All this providing long as I don't start having some sort of bad symptoms. Hope u feel better soon

In fairness I did have un diagnosed bleeding for 1 month then I picked up 5 different bugs in the hospital and had different antibiotics for each one at the same time. When I went home I had to go to the clinic every week but now as my levels are improving its once every 2 weeks. I am totally exhausted doing nothing but my nurse said it's to be expected. Good luck

My visit were like that.right after surgery, but now 4 month check they have monthly. We have to be so careful about being around people, it's so crucial, we get a blessing and have to work so much harder to keep it, but it's worth it. I personally never see another dialysis center ever.
