How many years have you had your Transplant for?

only 5 months

I am Interested in Transplant Friends because...

I want to know about the experiences of other tx recipients. Also, I hope I can support those who are awaiting tx.

Which Transplant Center has or will perform your life saving surgery?

University of Wisconsin-Madison

Share how your transplant experience changed your life?

It was a pre-emptive transplant, so now the fear of dialysis has abated...for now.

  • I see we have pretty much exactly the same interests! With the exception of swimming :-)

    Thanks again for your feedback. And congrats on being your own advocate since 2012! I really admire that mindset. 

  • Happy Birthday to you Moose Mom

    Wishing you well on your birthday.

    Take care

  •  Happy Birthday MooseMom ! 

  • Hi Moose Mom

    Thank you for your kind words.

    This website was created three years ago.  It was very difficult to manage two websites. I actually never thought it was an issue until I started to feel a lack of motivation and direction. I realized then I was doing too much.

    Now we can focus on this website. The Transplantbuddies.org is up but all of the posts are only available for archives.

  • Hello MooseMom, welcome to tx friends. Glad you found us. I had my Kidney tx on June 22, 2012 at U of M. Live life.

  • Welcome to Transplant Friends Moose Mom. We look forward to sharing the road with you and your posts.

  • Hi Moose Mom

    Thank you for joining today! I just spent several hours trying to collect emails from the old forum (hard work-complicated) and it warms my heart to know that all of that time was well worth it- just for one person who joins us.
