Profile Information

Were you a member of our Forum on http://TransplantBuddies.com ?
I was but i forget my screen name and password.
Where did you hear about Transplant Friends?
I heard about the group from the transplantbuddies website.
Are You Male or Female?
Male
Share - which illness led up to you needing a transplant?
I just started feeling sick in the winter. I thought I was just working to much, over 50 hours a week. Iwent home Christmas eve and felt bad. The day after Christmas my wife at the time took me to our family doctor, who just said to get me to the hospital. I started feeling a little better but a nephrogist looked at my blood test and wanted to do some more tests. The next day they installed a cathetor in my neck and I started dialysis.
I went back to work and got a hernia after getting in the back with a forklift and had surgery on the hernia.
Which Organ(s) did you receive? If you are on the waiting list, please share.
I received a kidney from a cadaver . I had been on the waiting list for 2-1/2 years. I should have been on the list longer but I was a "perfect" match for a kidney so the hospital called me in for the surgery. A blessing !
Drugs, vitamins, favorite foods
Mycophenolate, cyclosporine and prednisone for the kidney transplant and a little clonidine for high blood pressure.
How many years have you had your Transplant for?
11 years
I am Interested in Transplant Friends because...
the transplant is my life. If I hadn't had a transplant I do not believe I would be alive today. I want to learn as much s I can to make the transplant lost as long as possible.
Which Transplant Center has or will perform your life saving surgery?
I had my transplant at the University of California in San Francisco.
Share how your transplant experience changed your life?
I have been able to be Dad to two beautiful daughters after my transplant to join my wonderful daughter before I had ESRD.
