Hi Steve,

How are you? My name is Dan, Im 30 years old from Bristol, England. I hope you dont mind, but I am looking to increase the awareness of renal failure and what is required with regards to kidney dialysis. I had a previous transplant attempt last year from my father but unfortunately failed, and now I have developed antibodies against my mother so I need desensitisation therapy first.

I was recently rejected for making a disability claim from my local council offices in the UK and I think this is wrong and that more renal patients should be given better access to help when required so I have set up a petition website at:

www.ipetitions.com/petition/renalparkingrights

Its free to sign up and you will be helping potentially hundreds if not thousands in the UK with recognition. I am approaching people with kidney failure or who have come through the other side, as Im sure you will understand the difficulties experienced first hand.'

Thanks in advance,

Daniel

I had an acute abdomen. Intestines died. Once on TPN, other organs began to fail. Eventually needed six organs. Prior to the transplant I was a professional educator for nearly 20 years. My illness/transplant forced me into retirement disability, but I like to think of myself a "differently-abled":-) I miss my passion, my career, but I am blessed with a grandson -almost 9, a grandson -almost 4, and a granddaughter -almost 3. My grandson kept me going. My second grandson was born while I was awaiting a transplant in Miami. My granddaughter was born after I was home for good. I spent over a year in and out of hospitals. I try not to look back -only forwards. I awaken each day -work out the kinds -and try to be a positive role model for others -to be a blessing in others' lives. I am so grateful to have a wonderful husband who was my care taker when I was ill, loving an supportive parents, a best friend and daughter, her significant other, and my three grandchildren. Grands are so GRAND!
You have been through a lot. We all have. Adversity in our lives has made us stronger. I believe God writes our life stories...

Cardiac biopsy - how often?

Hi,First post folks. I'll begin with quick background: My 15-year old daughter had a heart transplant 6 months ago after having severe dilated cardiomyopathy with left ventricular noncompaction (now known to be a result of a genetic mutation original to her). Anyway, transplant was at the highly acclaimed Columbia/NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital - to which we moved for waiting for the heart, transplant, and follow-up care. Now, 6 months after transplant, we moved back to our home. Our medical team has a different protocol for checking for organ rejection.Whereas NYP's protocol is cardiac biopsy every month for first year, every 2 months for second year, and every 3 months for third year, our hospital's protocol moves to every 3 months after 6 months, then every 6 months after a year and every year after 3. Bottom line- much fewer cardiac biopsies.I'm wondering if you know the different protocols in checking for solid organ rejection / heart - and how they differ from different medical…See More
