Hello Cathy,

I wanted to wish you a BIG Congratulations on your 4 years with your new kindey and pancreas. I am so glad you are doing well. Wishing you many more filled with great memories, new discoveries, friendship, many hugs and smiles and lots of love & happiness.  More important though, I wish you continued good health. Have fun celebrating!

Cathy,
Thanks for your message; and I am doing much better. Levels are staying stable and that's a great sign. Sorry to hear about your bladder infections; I have had 2 bouts with CMV soon after my transplants, but didn't last too long, Does make me wonder if this
is possibly the cause of my slight pancreas rejection.
I did have urinary trac infection in April which I was quite ill and about 1 month later is when my amylase/liapase levels begin to rise..... makes one wonder.
I'm just anxious to start cutting back on some meds; especially the Prednisone -- heavy doses now and I and tell. Never have had good eyes (due to 47 yrs of diabetes) and the pred affects them too, plus the swollen face etc.
thanks again for thinking of me and keep writing ---
Take Care,
Nancy

Hi Cathy, i haven"t worked in eight years I say busy with a lot of different things Lately I have stayed with my day while he had eye surgery. We are waiting to get the final word on my niece about being a donor. She had to have several test on her liver. I would like to find someone to talk about pre and post transplant with. It sounds like you have some issues post. Take Care.

Hey Cathy,,,,,How's the Kid/Pancreas? Isn't great to have a Pancreas that makes Insulin! I am so glad for you:) Yes Dr. 'Peter' Stock is way cool isn't he? We need more Docs like him~~~and Cely is the greatest:)
Well my road for another Kid.Pancreas goes like this...I need a living donor (prefered) then they will do a pancreas after like 6 months to 1 year. My current Kidney (my wife Nancy who donated to me in '92) isn't doing so well...last creatine was 2.9 bun 68...so today our nieghbors just offered me 1 of their Kidney's ! Is that way cool or what? Well God knows all about how it will work out:) Oh yes I miss my Pancreas! Ok well tell me more about you ok? Take Care, Tracy

According to Kidney Doctor, the rise is kidney cancer may have a strong correlation to the modern way of living. Meaning, alcohol drinking, being weight challenged, eating lots of red meat and smoking are habits which increase your risks of developing cancer. Nugget: Healthier lifestyle=Prevention.See More
