My story is this… Last June 6, I started on dialysis because my kidneys shut down.

I have a disease called FSGS which means the filters in my kidneys are clogging and I was on a very, very high dose of Prednisone and I really hated the side effects. I stopped the Prednisone cold turkey and never told anyone. Two weeks later I went to my cardiology appointment and they told me that I had to be admitted that day because I had end stage renal failure (ESRF).

I got my transplant on my brother’s 30th birthday. Sadly I ended up in the hospital again on Thursday after post op clinic because of fluid retention. Luckily, things are looking up and I’m gonna maybe go home in a few days.
