Sounds fancy. Did it affect the scar at all?
(Where's the Walkthrough?)
not really, due to the nature of the operations i've had. The incision was done on top of a previous incision, so in other words it was on top of a scar.Wrench Wench wrote:Sounds fancy. Did it affect the scar at all?
Genetic, Alports Syndrome. and speaking of that, have you gone through the blood tests to test for compatibility? cousins are close enough to do a passable job, but the chances of rejection are higher then say, parent or sibling. (mines from my uncle, 90% matchup in genetics, which is odd)ContinualNaba wrote:Diet or genetics?
Either way, I might well end down your path if I didn't donate blood roughly once a month. See, this is what happens when you supe an iron recovery biological system without giving the blood vessels and organs to match.
No scars, though. Planning to donate my kidney next month, provided my cousin's condition doesn't improve.
lol, My own kidneys have shrunk to the size of a walnut since my kidneys cacked it. besides, i was born with the kidney problems. males with my condition usually suffer renal failure at around 25-40 on average. I broke that norm by having mine go at 14. whereas women dont get hit until 50+ usually. several years of both hemo and peritoneal dialysis (my doctor doesnt like transplanting teenagers for 2 reasons, 1)higher chance of rejection due to puberty and such, and 2) rebellion, not taking tablets etc etc) before a cock up with my local hospital and the specialist one, one was saying i had peritonitis, other was saying I had appendicitis. had appendicitis, that went bang, bloody hospital had to cut through my peritoneum to get at the appendix.Wrench Wench wrote:Kidney failure eh? Sounds nasty. I seriously hope I never have anything like that, if only because of the fact that my kidneys are probably the same size as your liver...

rejection also depends on if the doctors can find the right amount and combo of immuno-suppressantsContinualNaba wrote:'Course we're compatible, otherwise it wouldn't be scheduled.
Rejection chance is maybe around the 20% mark, but it'll do.

The talk about open heart surgery and cracking open ribcages has left my chest tingly.
The talk about kidney failures and transplants has made my kidneys ache.
Damn I hate my mind sometimes...
