Much to think about

Post by JMan »

Well my last clinic was different for sure. Consultant hinted at possibility or to consider double transplant. (actually I'd need 3 ops) heart, kidney and sorting out the bladder/uterus problem.

Not something to consider lightly even if it was possible. Its just thoughts in the ether, would involve much testing, appointments etc..

Gosh that is a lot!! Deep breaths...

I'm currently working out whether I want to pursue a liver transplant (my PKD is also PLD, yay).

Wishing you all the best
PKD/PLD diagnosed 1994, CKD stage 5 Oct 2007, Living Donor Kidney Transplant Dec 2008, still going strong!

Wow, if they are asking they must think it a viable option but that is a lot to think about.
Best wishes which ever way you go.
