Italics aren't bothersome, however, since it's understood that this is meant to be a journal. If he posted all of his posts in Italics, I'd skip them too.

Exactly. As I stated in a previous post, poems and other special posts are excepted from the general rule.

As an aside, I found out recently that the NYU Blood Donor Center accepts blood from cancer survivors if 2 full years of remission have passed. I just donated today for the first time in years.

That made me happy. Thanks for sharing.

About a year and a half ago I answered to an email message that Chaya Lipshutz of Kidney Mitzvah sent around. The risks for donating a kidney are relatively small (for a major operation), and the benefits to the recipient great.

Best of luck and health to you, keepcoolny


Thank you.

Part IV

I had scheduled my first visit to the transplant center for orientation and testing for last week Friday but work forced me to reschedule for Tuesday. Renewal graciously sent someone to pick me up at home for my 9am appointment so I don't have to endure over two hours on the A and the 4. I arrived at the transplant center just a few minutes late and it started immediately: the paperwork. More disclaimers, more questions and more signatures.

Paperwork complete, the day can start. Awkwardly shlepping around my puffy jacket and backpack, I will be going from office to office until 2pm. We start with the scale (159!) and blood pressure (normal) using both arms. We then move on to blood (10 vials in different lengths and cute colors) and urine (just half a small container).

Then we wait.

Next up is the meeting with a social worker. They want to make sure I am of sound mind to make the decision to donate and that I am not donating for the wrong reasons. The meeting lasts a lot longer than expected and includes the expected (Why do you want to donate? Does your family support you?) to the unexpected (Why the lack of relationship with your father? What was your label among your siblings growing up). I wonder if I "passed" that one...

Then we wait.

While I wait I meet the Renewal program director in person as he just drove another potential donor in from Lakewood. He in turn introduces me to a woman who received a donor kidney just over a year ago who happened to be in for a follow up visit. When he tells her that I am a potential donor she starts losing her words. She tries to express to me her amazement and appreciation; to try and impress upon me that I too can give someone their life back.

Then we wait.

Finally we have the orientation "class" which ends up being just me and one other guy. The transplant coordinator goes through a PowerPoint presentation filled with information they have already handed to me as well as some new information. We review donor selection criteria, the matching process, the risks, the surgery and more. The transplant center is proud of their strict donor selection and attributes their low rate of death (0) and complications to this strict selection process.

She does not mince words when it comes to describing the surgery. There will be pain, a lot of pain. I will wake up bloated with a catheter in my bowels and everyone will be cheering me on, trying to get me to pass gas. Apparently the bowels are the last to wake up from the anesthesia.

I have until I am under anesthesia to back out.

Before I come back for the next set of tests I will need to do a 24 hour urine collection. I will spare you the gory parts but suffice it to say that I left with a giant jug with a little bit of acid at the bottom.

I meet the surgeon who in the end will actually be the one overseeing the transplant surgery. It's a quick meeting, he does the requisite stethoscope check and I am off to my next stop.

Next stop, EKG. Open your shirt and lie down. I'll just connect these leads here and you'll be done in a minute. Here's your EKG results sheet, take that back up to the transplant center.

Next stop, chest x-ray. Now this part of the hospital was a whole other story. I waited almost an hour among people in various stages of disease and decay until they finally snap two x-ray pictures of my chest and I am finally free to go.

More educated about the process and the risks, I am still committed to this.

So impressed with your decision and how you are handling this. You are a role model! I do find it funny that you posted your weight. Only a guy would do that! :)

....and includes the expected (Why do you want to donate? Does your family support you?) to the unexpected (Why the lack of relationship with your father? What was your label among your siblings growing up). I wonder if I "passed" that one...

Interesing questions. I wonder how any person would answer these. It's a good thinking point.

Just a quick update: I completed the 24-hour urine collection over the weekend and had my CT scan today. Next appointment is to meet with the surgeon, the donor advocate and the nephrologist. I should write a real update...

Just found out that Renewal considers accepting kidneys from cancer survivors after 5 years clean. Interesting.

Just a quick update on this very long process. The Nephrologist pointed out that I will need to lead a healthy lifestyle after my donation so he wants to see my cholesterol and my weight start heading down before they accept my kidney.

My PTT numbers were high (45) in repeated tests so I am supposed to go for a visit with the hematologist to discuss it as it may kibosh the whole thing.

That's it for now...

In case anyone is still following, just wanted to post that KeepCoolNY donated his kidney on Tuesday. He's been in the hospital since then and is recovering nicely. He donated to a 16 year old girl, who is doing really well. He'll hopefully be released today and then will be recovering for the next 2 weeks at home.
