At stage 5 renal failure, you likely would have had a severely decreased output in urine and an elevated blood pressure reading due to an increase in fluid levels in your body. Did you experience any of these symptoms? What was your BUN/Creatinine levels when they found out that your Labs were critical? Good luck with everything, I work in healthcare and know that renal failure is a very tough thing to be facing at such a young age.
Is this all related to the head injury?
I assume you're on dialysis... How is that? Is it boring? Painful? And I'm also curious... Can you stay on dialysis indefinitely until a donor is found? Or is there only a certain amount of time you can be on it?
How are you handling it mentally?
As a 31 year old with end stage as well, next month will be 2 years for me. keep your chin up and if you have any questions or just need to talk, shoot me a pm. I have done it all in a short time, cheat port, fistula and now have a graft. Have also done in center hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis and also did home hemodialysis, so i kinda know the ropes if you do have questions
were you feeling off before the snowboard accident or totally asymptomatic?
Did they say your odds of receiving a kidney in time??
Did the doctors figure out why you have this condition? You seem very young for something like this to happen.
This may sound kind of odd but is it painful?
My daughter has a central line that she uses for TPN. I'm very concerned that you have an infection so soon after getting the line. Have you gotten training on the best ways to manage the cares?
I wish you all the best. Please let me know if I can help with information about managing your line. My daughter has had a line for six years, but has not had any infections.
Beyond the Kidney transplant what is the long term impact of this diagnosis for you? What would it mean for you going forward?
