I was released from the hospital yesterday after 8 days and 2 surgical procedures. I have Polycystic Kidney Disease. One kidney is functioning at 14%, the other at 16%. It is pretty rough right now. Stones in both kidneys and a bad infection. I had to be taken by ambulance to the ER on April 30. I was so weak I couldn't stand up. I don't know for sure what is next, I'll see the urologist next week. I'm in constant pain so I'm on heavy duty narcotics. What fun...narced up or unable to breathe the pain is so bad.
I'm waiting for a kidney transplant. I have some great friends who've volunteered to give me a kidney and hopefully one of them will be a match. If you'd like to be a kidney donor for me please let me know. All it takes is a simple blood test and a kind heart to get started.
Please consider giving a kidney to someone. I'm luck to have a few people lined up for testing. There are lots of people who have been on dialysis for years that need a donor. Be a hero. Give a kidney.
