On March 18, 2017, at 50 years of age, I was diagnosed with vasculitis – GPA. I am a white female. I was hospitalized until April 15, 2017. During my stay I had numerous blood tests, CAT scans, Ultrasounds, Endoscopy, Port put in my neck and then chest for dialysis, blood clots, 2 intestinal blockages, etc. My body was a toxic mess! I had 8 Plasmapheresis, numerous dialysis, and since October 2017 I now do daily in home dialysis using my peritoneal membrane. My kidneys produce urine and that’s about all they do. It appears my nephrons were damaged by the ANCA that attacked the major blood vessels in both of my kidneys. My research shows that a large part of the kidney can repair itself, but nephrons never will. I am coming up on 10 months and I am still holding onto hope that my kidneys will come back eventually. I was told I had a very aggressive form of vasculitis. I am looking for other patients that have this exact same disease to share information and hope with. I have a brother that will donate a kidney to me, but I want to use that as a last resort option. I do not like the cons of a transplant. Rejection medicine for the rest of my life for 1 example. My last creatinine check was 2.77 and my BUN is 71. So, I am still in stage 4 kidney failure.Thank you in advance for any positive or hopeful feedback.
