40 Year Anniversary

Post by Chris Wright »

For what it's worth, if people are interested, i had the 40th anniversary of my transplant on the 23rd Sept.

The kidney is still working well, eGFR about 60, Creatinine about 110.

So for all those more recent, hopefully yours will last as long, or longer than mine.

The rest of me is falling apart, prostate, heart etc...! :)

All the best

Chris
Transplanted Sept 1981

Still enjoying life like a 21 year old, or younger!
