Hi All, today is my 1st anniversary of my living donor transplant. Can report I have met the donor, lovely lady, and my wife as well who made it possible via the paired exchange program. There is life after kidney failure and dialysis! Holding thumbs I can see a good 20 years or so ! or more !
After a long time of waiting an anonymous donor has arrived in my life.
Words cannot express my gratitude to this lady and my paired exchange wife donor making it all possible
transplant 19th June 2015...Going very well mind you 2 years later
