My nephrologist referred me for transplant eligibility testing last Jine. The transplant center pulled me in for the first appointment on July 31st. I spent the day at the center that day. I had a few hours of patient education, met with s financial coordinator, met wit a transplant nephrologist, and met with the transplant nurse coordinator. A number of labs were ordered as well as various cardiac tests.
I completed all the ordered tests by mid-Sept. I had another appointment on Sept 24th. That appointment included a visit with a social worker, a renal dietician, and a transplant surgeon. I was told I needed one more test, a colonoscopy. I had that done on Friday, Oct 18. No polyps.
My testing has all come back in with no problems. I’m learned on Sept 24th that the cardiologist has cleared me for the transplant as far as my cardiac health goes. But I haven’t heard the official word from the transplant center yet.
So now I wait... I’m hoping this won’t go on too much longer. Anyway, any suggestions for how I can past the time while waiting?
