Re: Coronavirus

So is everyone who is in immunosuppression now staying in for the next 12 weeks? What are you doing about your family or people who live with you?

Coronavirus

Slightly surprised there is'nt a thread on here already about this but I just wondered if anyone had received any advice from their clinic/GP or employers about the current state of affairs and how it might impact anyone who has had a transplant and so on Immunosuppressants or on dialysis etc. Had a...

Re: "Please Offer Me A Seat"

I travel into london each work day on the underground, unless someone asks for a seat or I happen to see someone who needs one then I really don't pay attention to anyone that might need one. I do think that quite a few people seem to think that people simply ignore someone who maybe needs a seat wh...

TB

Hi,

I had a kidney/pancreas transplant in March 2015 that appears to be going well so far thankfully, about 2 weeks ago I was diagnosed with TB and just wondered if anyone else on here had experienced this at all as getting information and people to talk to about it online seems next to impossible.

Re: Post transplant nightmares

For a short time after coming out of hospital post transplant I also suffered with sleeplessness and issues around nightmares which I put down more to the high steroids and coming off of the pain medication, as soon as I was off of the pain medication and the steroids were reduced down it completely...

Re: Joining forum seems a milestone.

Very good control of your sugar levels and blood pressure are very important, asking your doctor for advice around this also would be a good idea if you haven't already asked. I'm sure you will get more replies with some more helpful advice but try not to let it all get to you too much as there can ...

Re: APD Electricity Cost

When I was on APD through the Royal London in 2014/2015 they also told me that if storage was an issue (as there are a lot of boxes to store on a monthly basis) then they would pay up to a certain amount for a shed or similar to be built in your garden etc, if you use a spare room to store your equi...

Re: What do you miss?
