  • I see we both had our transplants at Northwestern. Who's your doctor for follow up? I see Dr. Luo for the last few years, Dr. Leventhal while I am in the hospital. I use to have Dr. Kaufman, but we did not get along after a couple messed up diagnosises.

  • Hi Kay

    welcome back to Transplant Friends.com

  • Hi Kay. I'm interested in hearing more about your kidney transplant experience if you'd like to share? I'm a psychology grad student looking to learn more about the effects of kidney transplants and donations on the recipients and their families. I want to improve the mental healthcare services recipients and their families are given through the process. Please feel free to leave me a comment or message if you'd like to share more about your transplant story. Thanks!
