  • Friends,

    An update long overdue: after taking years of tacrolimus, in feb 2018 my kidneys finally collapsed and I'm now on  Peritoneal dialysys doing e xchanges a day. Working with UCSF for a kidney transplant. My wife is the living donor who will participate in the exchange program. The process has just begun. Can anyone give me an idea how long will it take to get the transplant done ?
