Re: Kidney transplant success

Glad to hear things are going well. Was there a problem with language or do you speak Chinese? I'm curious. How was the hospital and treatment? What are you doing for follow up now that you are back? Hope everything continues going smoothly.

Re: Kidney transplant success

Hello Cora,
excuse me for the delay-I was awfully busy.Now let me answer your questions.
Of course not,it`s beyond us speaking Chinese))))))But at the airport we were received by a representative of the middleman who organized this 'kidney trip'.He escorted us to a small hotel somewhere in the suburbs as far as as I guessed.When the dark fell,we were taken to the clinic.I was afraid to see a primitive medical post and not a renal transplant clinic in the proper sense of the word))))))But fortunately the sight was quite adequate.It is not that the walls inside were covered with gold and silver,but everything looked very clear and modern.Though I`m not quite good at judging these things.And surely we saw only what they wanted us to.
My friend stayed there and I was given a lift back to the apartment.Both my friend and me were given a cell phone connected to a local operator so that we could be in touch.I was told not to visit the clinic without permission due to security considerations.I had to obey...
By the end of the second day the best compatible match was selected and the time came to pay.Yes,the payment is due BEFORE the transplant.They explained that the donor wanted to see and touch his money and the staff needed to be sure they weren`t supposed to work for nothing.The representative gave me the accounts into which I had to transfer the money.(We were warned at the beginning not to bring cash along).So I gave a call to a third party--our old friend who stayed at home-and he provided the payment.The operation started the next day,probably after the payment had been verified.
In the evening of that very day the friend managed to call me up and said in a very weak voice that he was alive and felt rather strong.And then came the time for post-operative nursing.The doctor explained to us that in spite of the fact the kidney was received from an unrelated donor,rejection was supposed to be slight enough owing to proper matching possible and recent developments in anti-rejection medicine.
My friend was discharged on the tenth day after the transplant.But we were advised to stay near the clinic for 2-3 weeks just to make sure the kidney was functioning all right.Maybe they merely wanted to get more money out of this round(this 2 week care was charged extra),but we found it sensible to accept the offer.I couldn`t stay there for so long as I`ve got many deals to run,so the friend`s stayed in China alone.But we interact with one another via the Internet and he reports every day nothing bad is going on.He still suffers an occasional pain,but his new kidney`s working well.He plans to fly back home in 10 days or so.
That`s all I can tell you,Cora.I do hope the information will be usuful to you.
Regards.
