Miguel Acosta Báez, is 70 years old and lives in the Cuban province of Villa Clara. He’s not famous, but he should be: he’s the world’s longest living kidney transplant recipient and on May 5 he will celebrate his 38th transplant anniversary. Acosta is not the only Cuban among the list of world’s longest living kidney transplant recipients: Marta Porro Morales, of Camagüey received a kidney transplant 35 years ago.

Charles Nelson Perkins, aka Kumantjayi Perkins (16 June 1936 — 19 October 2000) was an Australian Aboriginal activist and football (soccer) player, and administrator. Perkins was also notable as having Australia's longest recorded survival for a kidney transplant, having received a donor kidney in 1972. [28 years]

See I was thinking I was going to be one of those people.  My kidney is ten years old but I'm in stage three failure now.  I recently went to pre-transplant to schedule a new work up to go back on the list and they gave me some resources to read.  One said that people who get "live" kidneys last twice as long as those who get kidneys (as I did) from someone who is brain dead.  There is no one in my family who is a match but I may have to start looking for friends or church members cause I don't want to be having a transplant every ten years or so.

I always try to remember that there are the stats and then there's what happens to each of us individually.  Kind of like the side effects of meds.  I try not to even read those until something starts happening with me then I go looking at those.
My first trx was cadaveric, was a perfect match and the donor was just 17.  It lasted 23 and a half years and I firmly believe it would have been longer if not for a screw-up with a routine colonoscopy.  Wrong prep med, a tiny puncture (years of prednisone can leave us quite delicate) and afterwards was when things began decelerating rather fast.  However, I always feel that the only thing we can really control is looking after ourselves the very best we can through diet, exercise and lowering our stress levels to the max, comply carefully with our team's instructions but ask a thousand questions to keep them on their toes and arm ourselves with as much information as we can possibly fit into our heads.

Of course I want 30 years out of this new transplant of mine but I'll relish whatever time I'm given.

James Piechowski in Oshkosh, WI had a kidney operation on 6/5/1979 and received his
identical twin's kidney.  As of this writing (6/5/2009), Jim has been alive and well
for 30 years.  His, twin, though, has the same condition that ruined Jim's own kidney's.
The doctor's have been able to sustain that condition these last 30 years so the condition
doesn't ruin the twin's last natural kidney.  The twin developed the condition after his
donation.  There is another family member who could donate to the twin, if needed.

The 1979 surgery was done at the University of Wisconsin Madison.  Now, though,
for the last two years, Jim goes to Froedtert in Milwaukee and Neenah, WI Theda Clark. 
Life was great until the health insurance and medical field got hellish.

Madison got really bad.  Jim would go for his physical, and then the clinic would
call him up one week later (in the evening) and demand that he set up a
payment schedule.  Jim NEVER had outstanding debt at the clinic for twenty-eight years,
yet they would treat him like he was a dead beat non-payer.  The business side of
Madison was cruel and inhuman.  The staff and doctor's all got appathetic
because of how the whole industry had changed.  It got so Jim felt that
they didn't give a care if he was okay or not.  I wouldn't wish them on anyone.

Froedtert, though, has been a blessing.  It is a total different story with them.
Jim is so fortunate to be able to get in down there.  I'd recommend that
facility and doctors to anyone. 
The prices at Theda Clark are the best around.  We had the option of going
to Aurora, and found out that Aurora charges what the traffic will bear.
Aurora has a patient sign that Aurora can go and get a their credit report.
They see if you have a medical savings account and if you do, Aurora
charges reflect the balance in your account.  A patient can't get
Aurora to quote a price.  It is always a ballpark figure and says that
the price may be higher.  Well, after the credit check, the price is
higher.  I personally paid $1,500 for a $300 ultra sound.  I never
went back to Aurora after that.  Aurora has friends in the federal senate
and gets social security money just handed to them for nothing.
Aurora is ruthlessly competitive and determined to run good places
like Theda out of business.  The WI senator, Herb Kohl, is also determined
to help Aurora do their damage.  It is all so unfair.  People need to
support the kind wonderful places like Theda with their dollars.
At Theda Clark in Neenah, WI....they are the best.  They quote
firm quotes and the care is totally superior.
The other health system in our area, Affinity, is part Catholic and
they are like Madison, cruel and inhuman and greedy and apathetic.
We used to have to go there and it was an angry experience.

To all the patients out there, I sincerely hope that the medical industry
doesn't make your life more difficult than it really is.
I hope you can find a good and kind doctor/system and can
rejoice in your life.

I'm 62.  I just had open heart surgery, which should be good for 25 years.  If I get my kidney soon, and it lasts for 25 years, then I'd be 112 before they both wear out.  Not sure I want to live to be 112, but it's certainly worth shooting for.   :sarcasm;

My twin sister had her first transplant from our father in Nov. 1964 and then her second from our younger brother in June of 1989.  She is doing well at age 58.

A medical marvel: a 55-year-old man with an 82-year-old kidney. Bill Thompson received a kidney 40 years ago during a transplant surgery at Children's Memorial Hospital that saved his life and made medical history. The 1966 procedure was one of the first kidney transplants from a living, unrelated donor to a child. [2006]

Hi everyone, I just found this site while doing a search on longest transplant recipient.

On February 6, 2010, my husband will be celebrating his 35th 'other' birthday.  That's what we call the anniversary of his transplant.

He started having problems with his urinary tract when he was 10 years old.  He had a growth at the top of his bladder which wouldn't allow his kidneys to drain.  He survived, barely, several surgeries for drain tubes and what not, to have his kidneys finally fail when he was 18 years old.  Months after his 20th birthday, he received a transplant from his brother.   He hasn't had any problems with rejection in all these years, Thank You God!!  Even his doctor that did his surgery is amazed at him.

Thanks for letting me join in.
