Dialysis Support Group

Dialysis is a type of renal replacement therapy which is used to provide an artificial replacement for lost kidney function due to renal failure. It is a life support treatment and does not treat any kidney diseases. Dialysis may be used for very sick patients who have suddenly lost their kidney function or for quite stable patients who have permanently lost their kidney function.

Hi triplek83. I was going to get a kidney today. But at 2am I got a call. From the transplant coordinator saying that the Dr. dint think that the kidney was a good one. And now I am so sad : ( So I need to chat with any one or some one. So if you can help just let me know. Thanks.

hi susan i'm so sorry to hear that. its no wonder you must be sad. bless ya, i dont no what to say (a lot of good i am). i no this does'nt help but if it was not a good match for you then it might be for the best. (i no that must sound evil but it would prob be more dishearterning if you had had it and then it fail or not work good) feel free to rant an rave at me if this is no help i dont wanna upset you anymore than you must be allready. but keep your chin up, post back if you want, i'll be here if you need to chat.

Lucyricky84,
I'm so sorry your kidney didn't work out. Hey just know that if you got called, you're on top of the list and the the best kidney for you is right aroung the corner.
I had a few calls myself. I turned most of them down because they were high risk donors.
On Nov 2, 2010 I had another offer, which I again turned down.
A week later Nov 8, 2010 I got THE call. I got my TX on Nov 9, 2010.

Hang in there, the right one is coming very very soon!!

(((((hugs)))))))))))

    I have cancer

    34
    I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
