  • Hi Amit,

    Glad to see that you are doing well after 7 years. My first transplant happened when I was 15 yrs old (in 1989) and I received my mother's kidney. I was fortunate that age was on my side and I got a good kidney. Moreover I did not have any other issues. My first 8 years after my transplant I was at my hometown eating home cooked vegeterian meals and was taking only boiled water. After 8 years I left my hometown for job reasons and spent close to 16 years in Bay Area in US. I have followed strict vegeterian diet and am an arduent follower of Yoga. I was associated with Yoga Bharati(https://yogabharati.org/) when I was in US and also became a part time Yoga Instructor. I came back to India 5 years back to be close to family and I guess the kidney gave up after a good run. I still follow a good diet regime. Eating outside is very limited and only well cooked food. I avoid raw food and light cooked food even at home. I am drinking boiled water still and I practice Yoga 2 times a day. Yoga Bharati is close to you and You can take their help in getting a custom made yoga routine for your specific condition.

    Hope this helps.
