It is with great sadness that I have to tell you my husband died last week just 20 months after having a kidney transplant. I came to this forum with several questions when he had his transplant and everyone on here was very helpful. I'd like to thank everyone for that. My husband had been on dialysis for three and half years before the op and he hated it. Unfortunately he never really picked up after the transplant and his general health went into decline. I asked him once if he thought he should have stayed on dialysis and the answer was a very definite no. He really enjoyed the freedom that the transplant gave him and he was very grateful to the donor's family for allowing him to have their loved one's kidney. Good luck to all those who have a transplant or who are waiting for a transplant, and good luck to all those staying on dialysis.
