Re: Vaccines for Covid 19

Hi, I thought I’d offer my experience and opinion of the vaccine for transplantees. Opinions : 1. My opinion is that it’s a good idea for transplantees to take both doses of the vaccine when offered. 2. My opinion is that it’s possible that having both doses of the vaccine means that, should a ‘vacc...

Re: Fear of tx failure?

Hi again, I’ve been wondering about whether to post this as it may be a bit alarmist and might be something which is specific to me rather than anyone else. As I mentioned before, I’m a 1/6 (living donation) match (which NHSBT states to be unacceptable as a match quality) and am 15+ years post trans...

Re: Fear of tx failure?

This is an interesting subject. I have a 1/6 match living donation and at the time of transplant the implication seemed to be that it should be good for about 7 years or more. This has been shown to be true. In two months time it will be my 15year transplantiversary... and my creatinine is still hea...

Re: Anyone experienced worm-like white discharge in urine?

I had them years ago (post tx). My gp (the then practice lead gp.. now moved on) said they were probably casts. I had an ultrasound (with a consultant radiologist) and there was a mild unspecified issue with my ureter (the bit from the kidney to the bladder). The docs tweaked my immune suppression a...

Re: ADTKD-UMOD

Hi, I had mckd2 pre transplant (it was initially diagnosed as fjhn then I managed to get Tony Bleyer's team at Wake Forest Uni in the US to do genetic testing and it was shown to be mckd2). My mum had it before me but we don't know for sure of anyone else in the family that has/had it. Not sure what...
