Ticks Spiders

Postby Grey » Mon Aug 28, 2017 10:02 am

Hi
Having had a transplant 2 years ago I am embarking on a new venture of caravanning. Having bought a newish caravan and seen close up how many spiders have been living in/on the van I wonder just how seriously I should take spider bites and ticks. Saw recently the story of Matt Dawson http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-40973709 and the affect it had on a healthy person it can only be a concern to me. Any feedback from post transplant patients? Stay strong!
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

Can you get it fumigated?

Then anything in it right now is dead. As for when you are camped, wouldn't think it's any more of a chance Isi than a day out in the countryside.
Now 35 with Alports and I had my first kidney-versary 18th feb 2013....I hope to have many more.

My living donor and his family are doing all well.

34 year old with Alports.

Living donor transplant take two 18/02/2013.....
