A (very brief) Explanation of the Results of MyKidney Biopsy

#MyKidney biopsy results = I've physically lost 25% of healthy kidney tissue in my transplanted graft due to scarring from an as yet still unidentified cause.

The only knowns are that 1) my original kidney disease (FSGS) does not appear to be re-occurring at this time; 2) there is no evidence of acute rejection, but 3) the damage could be the result of an on-going "chronic rejection".

What's up with #MyKidney... (my transplant, not this blog!)

I'm 2 years post-renal transplant. I've had no kidney complications, but I get bloodwork and see my doctor routinely every 1-2 months to monitor my health.

Three weeks ago during routine bloodwork, my serum (blood) creatinine level (a measure of kidney function) went from a very stable 1.0 (normal for me) to 1.4-1.5 (abnormal for me) indicating a problem.

Happy Kidney Day - My Two Year Kidneyversary!

On June 11, 2007 around 10:30 am my brother and I were in adjacent operating rooms. He was giving me the gift of life: one of his kidneys.

Two years have certainly flown by quite quickly - many changes, yet life still remains as mysterious and confusing as ever. Having a functioning kidney has allowed me much more freedom to LIVE, but I'm still figuring out my place in the world... then again, aren't we all?

HAPPY KIDNEY DAY!

Today is my "Kidneyversary!" (the one-year anniversary of my kidney transplant)...

In celebration, my nephrologist's office called and gave me the results of my bloodwork from last Friday - Creatinine .9 with a Tac (Prograf) level of 6.7. Awesome!!!

(((HUGS))) to my bro (and his kidney) that continues to produce the most wonderful pee on planet earth on an hourly basis. I wouldn't be here like I am without him.
