Hi, I had a transplant from a live donor last August 14. The donor was my Mum who is 73 and she's doing fine now.
My function is around 30% now (creatinine c 220) but I am struggling to achieve any kind of fitness. I'm 48 and played a lot of sport pre transplant.
I've decided to be proactive and have signed up with a Personal Trainer. Had two sessions to date of high intensity (well, high in comparison to the little I had been doing!) cardiovascular and resistance exercises and though it's a shock to the system, I think it's doing some good. We make sure my heart rate doesn't exceed 100bpm.
What I've found surprising is that there seems to be v little info on fitness programmes post transplant ie how much, how often, to what intensity, what specific exercises etc
I don't know what level of fitness is possible on a function of 30% - can anyone tell me?
I'd be delighted to hear of personal feats of endeavour with accompanying fitness regimes and kidney function! Please help, and here's hoping your health is on the up. Many thanks.
