My recipients creatinine is rising
« on: September 05, 2012, 01:21:01 PM »
It has been exactly one week since the surgery and my recipient's creatinine have started rising. Please keep Yousef in your prayers. I am praying things will turn around. Does this happen often? What does it mean?

will keep you and Yousef in my thoughts and prayers. This does happen after the donation surgery and your recipient's doctors will most likely have to adjust his anti rejection medications so that his immune system does not reject the kidney. Luckily the medications today are better than previously and often just an adjustment of the anti rejections or addition of steroids can help. They may also choose to do a biopsy to check to see if the kidney is rejecting but hopefully this is just a bump in the road and all will go well.

Remember to take care of yourself as well. You also just had major surgery.

All the best to you both.

As Sherri said, it does happen, but the transplant team should be right on top of it.
Will keep you both in prayer.

Will keep you and your recipient in our prayers. They have lots of tools at their disposal to bring things in line.  It is a bit of experimentation in the beginning to find what amount of medication is needed for each individual and how they will react and process it. Keep us posted.
