More Good News

On June 19th, 2014 I received more good news.

My nephrologist told me that my dossier about my kidneys is to be given to the kidney transplant group.

One of the aspects of my disease MPA is the presence of Anca-particles in my blood. The level of these particles is as low as it was when I left the hospital at the end of 2012. That means that the disease has come to a stop for now. It also means that there is no risc for the disease to reject a transplanted kidney as well.

Because of that the chances of a succesful kidney transplant are there. Now the time has come to do research whether my body and my heart, etc. can withstand the operation of a transplant. Because of my age a check of my heart is necessary.

I am in very good spirits with that news. It was already evident because of my current condition that I was doing well. I have started working again. But this has been great news that the possibility of a transplant is there. I hope you all enjoy the great news as well.

Good News

On June 5th, 2014 I had a talk with my kidney specialist. During the conversation it has become apparent that after two years of illness and kidney-failure, this coming November the research is going to be started on whether a kidney transplant will be viable, and then it is the start of waiting for a transplant kidney. We have to make sure that my MPA has died down and that MPA can’t destroy an eventual transplant kidney.
Furthermore it has also become apparent that my health is on the whole quite good apart from my two rotten kidneys.
All in all this is to me very positive news.
And I feel good!

Good news about my dialysis

I have good news about my dialysis. It goes well with me, so I’m going to have less dialysis. Yesterday (February 13th, 2014) my Nephrologist (for connoisseurs: the kidney specialist) told me that instead of 3 times 4 hours of dialysis per week, starting next sunday (February 16th, 2014) I will be having 3 x 3 ½ hours per week of dialysis and it might be even less in the future.
