Re: Needs new kidney after liver transplant
Sometimes, people with kidney failure don't show a lot of symptoms. If he is drinking a lot of beer, he may have some swelling though. If a family member is not a match, have you thought about doing a paired or chain donation? This is where your nephew's family member gives a kidney to someone else, and their donor gives to your relative. Sometimes the chains are quite long involving many couples. It's something to think about anyway.
If you have any questions about dialysis or transplant, feel free to ask.
