Chronic Kidney Failure struck me down when I was 37 years old. After 14 months of experience on dialysis on 5th Nov., 79 My dear brother Vinod made a peerless sacrifice so I could begin my life again. I am asked, How is my life after Kidney Transplant? Through my heart I can tell you that I have valued my this bonus life by giving direction to many kidney failure patients and their family members.
I have undergone the kidney transplantation. I am doing all my business and home activities with enthusiasm and courage. I have really started a new phase of my life. I have totally forgotten that I was a kidney patient few years ago.

I do not feel that I am a transplant patient. I got married in October 1992 and have a baby too. I am very happy now after transplant.
In my opinion, I am now feeling well and am enjoying good health. I do not have any trouble.
My health was good after transplant for 18 years. I have gone through a second transplant. In my first transplant I have taken care to have distilled water etc. which have helped me survive 18 years without any problems.
I have been a kidney patient practically all my life. I started haemodialysis in 1982, when I was 8 years old. I was on it a year when I switched to peritoneal dialysis.
I did great on PD for five years when I finally received a Cadaveric transplant in 1987. What a difference that made in my life! I kept the transplant a total of five years, and then it was back to PD.
During these years I graduated high school and completed BS in Psychology. Due to an infection, I had to go back to haemodialysis. I went to graduate school after my degree and got a Masters in social work. When it came time to graduate, I knew something had to change so I could work full time. So, now I do home hemo and I love it. For a year now, I have worked full time for The National Kidney Foundation of Arkansan! I am on the waiting list for a transplant, but while I am waiting I have have lots to do!
