Some of you may know me as Lillian Layton, others as Annie Reyes. Most of you know that I was born with a hereditary disease called polycystic kidney disease or PKD. Fifteen years ago I was told I would need a kidney transplant to survive. I was blessed by my sister’s selfless donation of her kidney and I am so very grateful for the years that gift has given me. Unfortunately, transplants don’t last forever.

Had Cystoscopy 10/13/16, waiting to hear back from UM my small bladder is adequate for a second kidney transplant.

So on Tuesday I traveled to Miami for an appointment with UM Urologist. Now they want me to have a cystoscopy to ensure my bladder is adequate for transplant surgeries.

In June 2013 I had a bilateral nephrectomy, 1 foot of sigmoid colon had fistulated into bladder; therefore, I had a bladder reconstruction.

I'm dreading this procedure, not too painful, just very invasive.
