I hereby want to inform all that my younger cousin has kidney disease. His kidney disease has gotten worse causing his kidneys not to work well enough to keep him alive. This is what he is facing now, and his treatment options are limited to dialysis treatments or a kidney transplant.
Getting regular dialysis treatments, usually twice times a week for four hours at a time, will help his kidneys do their job and keep him alive, but a transplant would offer him more freedom and the ability to live a longer, healthier, more normal life. A transplant would also give him more time to do the fun things he enjoy most, like spending time with his family and friends.
However, finding a kidney for a transplant is not easy. Just ask the 100,000+ people on the waiting list for a deceased donor kidney like him. Time is not on our side. Some wait for years; many die while waiting. The average wait time is five years or more for a kidney from a deceased donor. However, there is another option: receiving a kidney from a living donor.
Understandably, some people are afraid about the surgery and what living with one kidney will mean for them. Here’s some basic information about kidney donation:
- You only need one kidney to live a healthy, long life.
- Most donor surgery is done laparoscopically, meaning through tiny incisions.
- The recuperation period is usually fairly quick, generally two weeks.
- The cost of your evaluation and surgery will be covered by my insurance. The hospital can give you extensive information on this.
- You will have a separate team of healthcare professionals to evaluate you as a living donor. Their job is to help you understand the risks and benefits and look out for YOUR best interests.
However, If you are not able to help in above needs please help with some fund for further dialysis process and high cost of medicines as his family needs financial help as well. Please help urgently with some fund with open heart.
