I've had a kidney transplant for 25 years now which I have I am most grateful for but at the moment due to other problems the pills I take for the transplant doesn't allow me to take other pills to help with the problems I now find myself in ie pain control etc unable to walk I am trying my hardest to cope with what is is going on but find it very hard at times I was wondering if there is anyone out there with similar problems that I could talk to please don't think I am not grateful for the kidney because I am there is not eneough words that I can find to say thank you

I know I am 72 but I still would like to be able to walk and mainly be out of pain

What does your Doctor say?


Morning the doctor has come to the house to explain what is going on to myself and children when I say children I am talking about 50 years old lol it all to do with stenosis osteoporosis fractures and whatever is going on with the spine

I do try to get to the loo very very slowly but I get upset if I can't get there I also have had about 4 ops on hip last one they had to do a acetabular repalacement I also have a knee replacement arthritis etc so none of this helps there are a few other problems going on I have a /f so yes I have a few problems but I try not to think about them

Are you going to come up with a cure 😂 😂😂


Regarding your spinal stenosis due to cracks in the vertebrae, my wife had 2 separate balloon kyphoplasty procedures, and has gotten long-lasting pain relief. Basically, the surgeon is injecting cement (actually a resin) to "glue" the vertebrae back together. Technically, it's to remedy compression fractures. A similar procedure is called vertebroplasty. These procedures may or may not be appropriate in your case. I'm NOT a doctor. Perhaps worth asking your doctor about.


Thanks I might just ask about that it won't hurt Askining will it

It's not as though I am trying to take my drugs is it

I've just managed to walk down the passage to get a bar of chocolate ha ha but so pleased with myself thanks for replying


Hi sorry to hear you are in so much pain. Work with doctors I believe in these times there is a cure for everything. I will send a special prayer for you.


hi, I'm 5 yrs transplanted, sometimes i have a problem with standing & walking , and other times no problem. maybe have a doctor check for your sciatic nerve.
