I had my kidney Tx 1.9 yrs back,am on immunosuppressing drugs,my doubt is if I have my tablets regularly and have enough liquid(5 litres),is it possible to save my new kidney,or is there any other restrictions which I need to know ? Mine is a non-related donor.I'm having Vingraf 1 mg twice a day,Mofilet 360 twice a day and Wysolene 10 mg only in the morning.I'm 47 yrs old- female.

Hello.  I have been a kidney recipient for 1 year. The kidney is working okay, but my diabetes and Hypertension are out of control. I do take prograf 1mg twice a day and 750 ml of cellcept also twice a day.  My Nep. does not want to switch my meds. even if that I want to research for other immunosuppressing drugs that could be a better alternative for me. I have a high risk of losing my sight. I am happy for all those doing good after transplant.

I want you to know that your way of thinking and your desire to save someone's life through your kidney donation is wonderful.  
If you are a healthy person I don't see why this would not be an option for you.  My goodness, there are many people out there hanging on to hope with the will to survive and not enough doners.  My boss is a kidney doner.  She is doing perfectly well with her one kidney.  It has been seven years now and she and the receipient are both doing very well.  Enter National Kidney Foundation to see how you can become a doner.  I will keep you in my prayers for health and happiness as well.  Dealing with death is hard enough but losing a child is extremely hard.  The fact that you want to turn this into something positive by giving someone else a chance is awesome.  I lost my niece when she was 21 years old to a car accident.  That was almost 3 years ago and I still have difficulties accepting her death. God Will give you your strength.  This is not a forum for grief but I do understand how it all connects.  God Bless  and please keep healthy so you can help someone else.  I always wanted to do that.... I offered my sister in law my kidney but I have too many diseases to do that.  I have Lupus & Sjrogens along with too many UTI's and Blood in my Urine.... These don't add up to good kidneys for donation...LOL... Please don't despair try to keep yourself busy and find a forum for parents who have lost their children.  Just type that up on your search engine and see if you find support groups or seek professional help...
Comforting Hugs and Blessings to you....
