Creatinine

Hi - I had a Kidney Transplant 6 weeks ago from a cadaver. My Creatinine level is between 1.9 & 2.0 - Does this mean that Rejection of the Kidney is occurring? Would those levels be considered high ?

Are you nephrologists keeping a close watch on your creatinine and BUN levels? Six weeks is not long, so be sure to stay in almost daily contact with your MD and transplant team and nurses.

My husband's first renal transplant lasted 4 1/2 years, but the second one is still going strong after 16 years and he is doing great.

Sorry, meant to say, I know what you mean and I hope your kidney lasts forever. The keep making the anti-rejection meds better and better.

Thats a blessing 4-1/2 & now 16 years. That's why I'm trying to enjoy every minute of this blessed kidney. God willing with all of this high tech science they'll find a break through in where Dylassis  won't exist any more. God bless you & your husband
