New kidney, new start

Just a quick 'hello'. I had a kidney transplant about six weeks ago. So far so good. Looking forward to sharing experiences and hearing how others are getting on.

  • Hi timski, I'm 21 month post op and I've never had any set backs, initially some reaction to anti rejection, however nothing major and once surgeons tweeked same I've never looked back. It's one of the best ever "gift of life" I've ever been given. You enjoy your new lease of life and look after yourself and wish you many many healthy and happy years with your new kidney ( keep well).
