I hope you will: I've been a jumper for two decades. Be sure you keep the leg strap tight if your kidney is near the surface in your groin. The sport is safety-within-safety and appears dangerous but is in fact far safer (if you play by the rules) than anybody thinks. Your transplant has given you back your healthy life. Live it fully, and take you where your dreams guide you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have got kidney stones I have had them for a long time is there any foods or anything I should avoid?
Find cause: Cystine, uric acid, and triple-phosphate stones can often be kept from recurring by specific measures that your physician knows. Diet's not the magic answer to any kind of stone & life is complicated enough without modifying what you enjoy eating when the impact is so small. Unless your physician tells you otherwise, drink plenty of water. Good luck. ...Read more

Kidneys anatomically require connection to an artery for blood supply, a vein for blood drainage and the bladder for urine outflow. In a transplant a healthy kidney is disconnected from its usual attachments and moved to a new location with those 3 requirements (artery, vein, bladder). This may be an auto-txp - somewhere else in your own body; or an allo-txp -from ...Read more
