Special First in Transplant Life:
Transplant Has Affected My Life:
Though I'm a male, I consider this kidney 'My Baby'
Except for a severe reaction (nearly died)
to the experimental drug ALG six days after the transplant and a weird reaction
five weeks later
every kidney function has gone so well that I sometimes nearly forget for
several days about it. It has taken me through 17 surgeries for joint/prostheses
and revisions, with nary a sputter..
