Hi everyone im wayne i was born with alports and was in and out of the hospital my entire youth. On dialysis for 3 years then transplanted in 1983. Alot of people ask me what my secret it and i really dont have one . I knew my kidney was a gift from god and that he doesnt take gifts away i never sat around worrying that my kidney was going to fail i lived life like everyone else ate and drank whatever i want and 34 years later my kidney is working perfectly and i havent had any rejections. My advice to new transplant patients is not to spend ur time worrying if u will reject but use the gift u have gotten to live a normall life. Diddnt u worry enough before your transplant?. So "dont worry be happy".
