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...
Thanks for the sweet welcome to this site!Im in the insurance phase , testing which my insurance paid for about $30,00 worth of testing.Can I ask how long did you have to wait once you were on the list?I have hepatic encephalopathy and have been to hospital twice in less than 6 months. The first visit I was pretty much out of my head. Finally adjusting the lactulose and x drug . Everyone I came in contact with was just rubbing me the wrong way.Second visit finally got the lactulose working right. Thanks to Dr. Panel one of the transplant doctors in Baptist Hospital Oklahoma City.See More
