  • I am so glad to hear that everyone has recuperated well from COVID; this is great news to hear.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Note: My sister (transplant recepient as well) got it and after monoclonal antibodies was like new the very next day. Amazing. She was vaccinated and boosted.

  • 3 weeks ago, I got Covid. But I have only itching throat for 2 days. I had kidney Tx many years ago. 

    Take care. 

    • I am so glad to earn you have overcome this virus and have returned to better health.

  • My husband and I both contracted Omicron in February 2022.  It was nothing.  We both had runny nose with cough for a month.  I had a headache for less than a week.  Husband had a sore throat and hoarse voice for a few days.  No big deal.  Not planning to get any more shots.

    • I am so happy to learn you survived and recovered!

  • Did anybody take Paxlovid antiviral therapy for covid. Seems like it is not for Kidney transplant patients. 

     

    • Monoclonal antibodies are approved for Tx recipients and are the preferred treatment for therapy for those that are infected with Covid - 19. These new meds from Pfizer and Merck, while approved, will be scarce in supply until production increases and will be used only for a select group, pending usage reports.
