Re: bc and human kidney transplant op cancelled

Hi zppadog

I really feelf or you. It is a double whammy that your operation has been cancelled because of the breast cancer. I think I understand a little of how you feel. I was going through testing to be a kidney donor when I was diagnosed in mid July.
I was almost at the end of the testing process and hoped to donate in the Autumn. I had put a lot of time and emotional energy into the whole thing and the disappointment that I can't now donate is huge. I am just so glad that the person who was going to get my kidney didn't yet know about it (it was part of an altruistic pooled donation scheme).
But my disappointment can't be anything like what you are feeling. I do hope you get a chance to have the operation at a later date. I will keep my finger crossed for you.

Re: bc and human kidney transplant op cancelled

Hi Zappadog, sorry to hear about your diagnosis and not being able to go ahead with your transplant. Just wanted to say hello. I was told that I will need radiotherapy because I had a lumpectomy and the rest of my breast will need to be zapped. They are taking the breast tissue away in your case. I am fairly new on here myself , you are best talking to an expert on the Helpline above. I used them one day before I had my surgery and I was very low and they put my mind at ease. Kathy

bc and human kidney transplant op cancelled

i was diagnosed with bc grade 2 on mon 29/07, itwas a massive shock as it was mt last test before my kidney transplant (husband is donor). I have decided to have a masectomy to hopefully get rid of it. myspecialist has toldme i will then take hormone tablets. I cannot have radiotherapy because of the low funcion of my kidneys (not on dialysis as yet) I will not be able to have transplant until i have had either 2yrs or 5yrs disease free.
any advice from people in this situation would be apprciated
I am so anxious i can barely function
thankyou looking forward to new friend
