I'll be listing in Chicago in the next few weeks. All I need is a dental exam, and a colonoscopy. the doctors there told me I'd need to be in the area afterwards for SIX MONTHS post transplant.Though I live in Southern California, the wait here is just unbearable. 4-6 years, I've been told, and only 18 months or so in Chicago. Looks like I'll be staying with Mom for a few months
i am going to be placed on the list on the 12Th could someone tell me what to expect? what medical tests are required and what does it intail? i was told i will be meeting with the surgeon nurse transplant coordinator social worker and someone who handles the financial end. thank you Vanessa
we were told at U of Michigan (ann arbor) that they start your wait time from your first time on dialysis.and that there are only 2 states that do this. however, U of M has a wait time of 5-7 years! toledo is only 18 months for O/A type. but they don't start wait time till your approved for list.
