My new lifelong best friend…Cellcept is the primary immune suppresor that will try to keep my body from rejecting the new kidney. I’ll be carpet-bombed with this for the first 6 months, then a lower dose the rest of my life.
The BIGGEST change for me post-transplant is becoming a Germophobe – something I have NEVER been! Gonna be a hard transition. The transplant team will spend a lot of time training us at the end of my hospital stay this week.
So if we encounter each other in the future, and you have the sniffles or a cough, and I say hi from a distance, please don’t be offended.
