Hey guys! Holly here!
Just a quick update, I visited the hospital on Monday, Wednesday and I am due to go again tomorrow. All my results seem to be going in the right direction, my creatinine is slowly coming down, my Heamoglobin levels are going up and so is my White Cell count! It's great to be home although I feel like I should be able to do more, my tummy is still feeling uncomfortable and I'm getting tired really easily. I'm bloated from the surgery and have a big moon face due to the steroids I am on to kick start my kidney (which I have named Ivy by the way). But all these things are a small price to pay for not having to dialyse and of course nothing compared to what the donors family are experiencing at this time and who made all this possible by their courageous decision.
I will get round to backdating my blog soon about my transplant journey, but until then, take care x
