I'm a 32 year old kidney disease patient, currently on dialysis. I'm also in school, working on my degree while dealing with the health stuff. My big goal right now is to get through transplant so I can eat what I want, spend my time & energy on finishing school faster, get back to working full-time, live my life.
Right now I'm in pre-transplant work-up, making sure I have a clean bill of health. Part of this is getting some dental work done before continuing: part of transplant involves shutting down my immune system with medications, which means I can't have a dentist doing things in my mouth, the risk of infection is too dangerous.
Before they will even test my blood with my sister's for kidney donation, they want the dental work done, so this is my last road block before continuing with transplant.
It's a long story, it's tough to fit into a few paragraphs. Every penny helps. Every thought helps. It's been a long, winding road and I want to push forward now more than ever. Please email with questions!
Sincerest thanks, for reading all the way through.
