20 Years Today
I was first diagnosed with Iga Nephropathy at the age of 30. Seventeen years later on November 20, 2003 I had my transplant from my sister. It has been quite a ride trying to live a "normal" life and not letting the new kidney hold me back. Now the hardest part is the mental game of trying to decide if a medical condition is due to the transplant/meds or just growing older.
Obviously I have no idea what the future holds but I am grateful for the past 20 years and the doctors that have guided me along.
