"Hi Tammy. I get it in my face an ankles all the time. I am on furosemide(generic for lasix). It helps, but not as much as I would like. I am waiting for a kidney. If you are having problems, maybe you can ask…"
"Hi Daniel. I am soooo sorry I am just responding to you after so long. I rarely come on here and I probably should. How are you doing? Did you ever get another transplant? I have actually had 4 myself, so I know how…"
"I don't think it is just a girl thing at all. I go through the same emotions, pretty much most of my adult life. I still have insecurities about my looks. As far as being "skinny," that is just what the…"

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…"
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:
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.'
I live in the Frankford section of Phila, but love to go down town and to Penn's landing,
I am healthy and here for a friend, to give her surrport.
I do understand what You are going thought, I had a Family member that was on kidney dialysis, He recieved a kidney now , about 1 year and is doing well.
I keep You in my prayers that You recieve a new kidney. Wishing You a Good Day my Friend ~ Hugs, Peggy
p.s. I will join the Three Rivers Club, I like that show alot.
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...
"I’ll try to make this shorter as I accidentally deleted the comment I just made in response to Dave Goodman.
Weaning is not for everyone, it may be a fatal mistake to try it. You have been selected to receive a graft after a long and…"

"Hi, I'm two years out for Liver TP. Went into rejection after 3rd week. They had me on 4gm of Tacrolimus X 3. for a year, then 5mg X 2, and down to 2 x 2. My Tac level was 3.7 last test. Up from 3. They want you between 8 and 18. I was also on…"
"0.5 mg Prograf 3x/wk sounds weird. If you are really taking that dosage you may not need Prograf. My transplant date was May 2003. I have never had a rejection episode and after six years on Prograf alone I decided to taper off Prograf…"
"I have never heard of anyone taking .5 mg. of prograf every 9 days. Are you sure that's right? .5 mg. twice a day is the lowest dose I've heard of. I take 1 mg. twice a day and it's considered a low dose. Prograf is taken daily,…"
"i recieved my new liver 32 months today Nov. 2 2012 MY 53 Birthday. I was put on Prograf and have done very well. I only take a .5mg capsule every 9 days. I assume that is great right? is there ever a point where one can be…"
