March 2019 will be my second month on HD. I am a 75 yo/eGFR of 8 and creatinine of 6.78 when I started dialysis. In a few days (March 5th) i will have a cardiac cath/stint procedure. A week later I will have surgery on left kidney to remove/treat a 3.5 cm renal cell carcinoma. In mid-March I have my first appointment for listing on the transplant list. While in hospital in January, 2019 to begin dialysis I had all kinds of tests (echocardiogram, blood work, chest X-ray, and nuclear stress test). I am currently maintaining my dry weight of 79.5 kg and seem to be handling HD well except for a few abdominal cramping during dialysis. Does anyone have experience with what concerns I might/should have about getting listed on the transplant list? What does it mean to be in “good “ health in order to get listed? Are there things I could do to prepare for the transplant evaluation? When will I know if they approve me to be listed? Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks!!
