6 month post kidney donor appointment went great!!! My doctor said I look great and was happy with my recovery.
Incisions are healing perfectly and I have no restrictions.
He also told me I am doing a great job at staying fit and healthy and told me that will be a huge benefit as I get older.
I will go back in another 6 months at the 1 year mark. I love my entire living donor team!! They have made this experience absolutely amazing and I am so thankful that I was able to do this.
I saw a few other living donors who were there for their post op visits and we are all treated as heros. They applaud and make such a big deal about us. You feel like a celebrity walking in.
I am so glad that I am aware of the need of organ donation. Without being through the past year, I wouldn't even give it a thought. But I am here to fight for those in need, on the wait list, waiting to receive their gift of life. I will use my voice to spread awareness and do all I can to help those people.
You can be a hero too!! Consider being a living donor or an organ donor. The lives I have seen changed by this priceless gift makes me wish I could do it a thousand times over.
If you have questions on how to register or concerns about being a living donor, please reach out to me. I am more than willing to walk you through it.
