I'm 7 months post-transplant and have had little respite from medical problems and interventions. I have had a nephrostomy (with bag) since Christmas Eve and a uretic stent since January, which constantly cause infections. I have been on antibiotic IV infusions twice daily for 3 weeks and whilst this has very slowly brought down infection markers my kidney function has steadily declined from 46 ex Gfr in January, down to 26 yesterday. I am having an operation next Wednesday to transplant my native ureta into transplant kidney and my bladder (and to mend a hernia along the way!)
Has anyone any experience of any of these complications ? Or can anyone offer me hope that a positive outcome is possible ?
I'm not anxious or depressed but it gets difficult to face another big operation.
Thanks for reading this
