From Dialysis to Transplant: Rosy gets a new Kidney

If you are wondering what having a transplant is really like, wonder no longer.  Long-time dialysis blogger and waiting list veteran, Rosy Edwards had the call from Guy’s Hospital in London about two weeks ago.

Over the next two weeks Rosy shared her highs and lows, her fears and exhilarations on her blog.  It’s a wonderful and unique record of the transplant roller coaster ride.  One that is not often told; firstly because few people are as eloquent as Rosy at capturing the moment; and secondly because it is told as it happens, not after the event, when the tough bits have faded from memory.

If, like me you have been through the transplant experience, it will bring back all the memories and emotions, and maybe a little flush of joy for Rosy and all the other successful transplant miracles.

If you are lining up for your first, and wonder a transplant is really like, stop by Rosy’s blog for a reality check.  The take-home message? It can be a tough gig, but most of the time, it’s worth it.

  1. Dear Greg, I returned to dialysis a couple of months ago and came about your blog, and through you, Rosy’s blog. Both of which have given me a good boost when I really needed it. I am so grateful to you both for your honesty and optimism. So thrilled for Rosy and wishing the same happens for you too. Warm wishes, Suzi
