Re: Longest surviving kidney transplant?
I wasn't sure, so I did a bit of a search and found this :
Bill Thompson is the longest surviving American kidney recipient. Having received his kidney in 1966 at age 15, it has survived over 40 years.
Congrats on the longevity of your graft. Was it from a living donor? When I had my kidney transplant my donors roommate was giving a kidney to her sister-in-law. The woman's first kidney lasted 35 years and it was from a deceased donor.
Continued good look and stay rejection-free.
