Blessed with a 2nd Kidney Transplant

Hi everyone! I'm new here and wanted to share my story. When I was 3 years old, I had a kidney transplant and my mom was the donor. I had a perfectly healthy for over 33 years until the kidney failed about 3 years ago. I started dialysis in October 2016 and it was going very well. Through the last 3 years, I got listed at 4 hospitals in Florida and on March 11, 2019, I received a call for a transplant at Florida Hosptial in Orlando. I had the transplant on March 12, 2019, and it was very successful. I'm now 2 weeks post and everything is going very well. I'm very blessed and grateful to my donor and his/her family which I didn't meet and they wanted to remain anonymous. I will forever be grateful to them and God! Praise God. I can't tell you how much my faith kept strong throughout this process. They say faith is unseen and I agree, ut on March 12, I saw faith and it was amazing. AMEN!

We have to have faith and believe in God. I pray every day for someone to step up and offer to be a donor for me. Congrats to you and good luck in finding a donor.

Hello

I waited 10 yrs and got that call. Come to find out I was told to take a pass on the kidney by the surgeon because my own kidneys were inflamed weighing 7 pound each. I had to set up surgery to get both removed first because there was mo room for the new one. I was both disappointed and happy because I’m 5 feet tall and looked very pregnant. Needless

To say Hod blessed me with s new kidney about a year later. God is good all the time and is in control. God bless you with His perfect timing for you. Don’t give up!!!

Your kidney pal

Wow thats amazing. Yea praise the Lord. My story is somewhat similar with my dad being the donor when I was 5. It didnt last too long but has my 2nd transplant from a friend almost 8 years ago. Still steady and hope for a long kidney life for the both of us. Thank God!!
