Hello. I hope people can help with this. I have chronic kidney disease and got a kidney transplant last year in august. I have had a uti that went to my kidney in April and was admitted to the hospital. Was given oral and intravenous antibiotics. Wasn’t feeling great so I went to get checked for another uti and it was positive. Anyone else had this problem before? I’m worried about my kidney function now and I wanna get labs but can’t until thanksgiving when I’m home because where I am in college doesn’t take my insurance.
I've been on Predisone for 7 years straight with my 2nd kidney transplant, and it is now causing severe joint pain and deterioration. My question is, has anyone stopped taking their Prednisone with their Nephrologists permission and, actually how important is Prednisone to our transplant routine?
I woke up and my face is more puffy. Is this a sign of rejection?
