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...

Vomiting and Diarrhoea after being exposed to chemicals

Hello AllJust under three years I had a liver transplant due to cirrohossis and Hep C.  I am back at work but seem to experience vomiting and diarrhoea if I have been exposed to chemicals of any sort.  Understanding fertilser and blood and bone for gardens is a no no for me. My medical team cannot give me any answers and I am wondering if anybody has experienced the same symptoms.  The episodes seem to last up to four to five hours at a time and leaves me very fatigued and wash out.  Hoping someone can give me some answers.Kind regardsFrankSee More

Working after Transplant

Hello to everyone,My name is Gene and I was transplanted almost 3 years ago. I suffered from liver failure as a result of Hep C. I am 59 years old now. I suffered a torn rotator cuff as a result of my positioning during my transplant and it took some time to recover from that. I did not have any surgery I simply learned to live with it. I also incurred steroid induced diabetes as a result of the transplant and now have a fair amount of neuropathy in my feet. I have found that I fatigue much easier than I once did. My doctor has concluded that I have also suffered some cognitive impairment and as a result of my illness and I have been declared fully disabled. After a year of rehabilitation I returned to work part time delivering auto parts. I have been working for 18 months now. By federal law I can earn $1070/month and continue to receive disability. I find it difficult to live on my part time wages however I have determined that in order to justify going to work full time I would…See More
