hey all..just wanted to give you all an update on my transplant, I was scheduled to have the kidney removed on nov 11 because the creatinine had not dropped off from 4.7. the following Friday, I met with the surgeon and he recommended that the kidney be removed. they did blood work but I did not hear the results so we went on as planned. on Monday the transplant nurse called and told me that the creatinine had dropped to 3.7 and when they did blood work on Monday it had dropped to 3.6. long story short, the surgeon and the nephrologist got into an argument about removing the kidney. I elected to wait and see what the creatinine was going to do for 2 more weeks. plus I didn't want the docs operating on me after they had just had a huge blowout.. creatinine continues to fall and rise but staying under 4. so on Monday 12/2 I am going in for ureter reconstruction and hopefully I wiil be on my way....will keep you all posted as I learn more. thanks for all your advise and I hope you all have a wonderful thanksgiving.
