6mo Biopsy

Aug 11, 2017 - 10 comments

Hello MH I'm home feeling really tired and worn. They tell you that 1 in 3000 die in a biopsy. In a Transplant kidney it is hooked up to the largest vein in your body with a normal kidney it has its own connections that help stem blood flow if damaged, If the kidney is sliced it can bleed out your body in minutes resulting in death. A Biopsy on a transplant is done once as the risk is so high well mine was sliced. It was immediate the pain it was all consuming when blood starts to fill the body cavities it hurts like hell and burns! while I was rolled in a ball they were screaming does your back hurt as that would indicate I was bleeding out. It was localized to the front Thank Goodness!

All I lost was a pudding cup worth of blood into my body cavity It does not sound like a lot but it is enough to make you wish it didn't. They had to give me medication to stop me from dry heaving and help get the pain under control I was sweating and could think of nothing but how much it hurt They had to use their hands to press on the kidney to stem the flow that also hurt The back of the kidney was sliced. I spent the night on bed in hosp. laying flat with a sandbag on katies kidney to assure sealing the flow. It stopped but left me feeling really weak.. It will result in a large contusion on my back and side as this is where the blood ended up. I was peeing orange for a lil while but it is back to a healthy lemon-aid color. They were very apologetic and said many tiems this hardly ever happens. They just have never met me lol :))

I cannot exercise ride my bike our lift more then 10 pounds for a week.

The Good news is No Rejection!!!! Creation is.99 GFR 79 This is Excellent news! It just keeps getting better! In 2 weeks I go back to speak of the results and to set up a treatment plan for the HepC. This is a long Battle for me this year but it is one I will give my all..

Without Katie this would not be possible so I give Gratitude.. What she could not do alone I will do for her and what I can not do alone she will do thru me. Without her I would not have this opportunity.

I had taken the shot during the event and 1 oxy .5 a few hours after. They tried to get me to take another but I just could not do it I felt as if I was betraying everything I had worked so hard for but I do realize if they did not get the pain under control I myself could have made it so much worse with my contortions trying to stop the pain. There is a time and place the trick is being aware of it at all times.

Thank you for your love support it means the world to me..

love lesa

Omg Lesa I truly cannot imagine the pain you described, all I can say is a huge thank you to the Creator that despite the pain and weakness afterwards that you are still with us today!!
And finding that there's no rejection is a double blessing, I am so relieved to hear this. Rest up girl you've been through a train wreck
((Hugs)) and love

I had to come back to say you are an awesome writer. You descriptions of what you went through helped me to understand. It had to be just awful for you. Thank God you are good now, not rejecting Katie and can continue on.  You are a marvel to me. Your words so.....I can't think of a descriptive word to let you know what I am thinking, sorry
I wish my husband could have 1/10 of your strength and tenacity.  Lots of healing thoughts and gentle hugs to you my friend, Dee

Love and hugs to you, Lesa, and Katie. So sorry that you have to go thru this grueling process, yet so happy that you are blessed to be connected to Katie and are required to go thru this process. You are amazing. You are an example and friend to many. Katie is shining down on you and is pleased that you received her gift. You are deserving and continue to show this each and every day. I am blessed to have crossed paths with you. Peace to you as u continue to recover. Much respect and love...G
