How to Get a Kidney Transplant – A Few Simple Steps to Getting a Slightly Used Organ In No Time

By Eric

As I write this article about how to get a kidney transplant, it’s only been a few years since I had my own surgery. I feel like I was blessed, lucky, and prepared enough to receive the gift and I hope I can help provide you with some information from my own experience to make your journey a little less difficult.

 

 

 

At first, even the mere mention of trying to get a new-to-me kidney would give me anxiety like you wouldn’t believe. It was only after I decided that I didn’t want to be on dialysis anymore that I made the choice to pursue new life by going after the thing I wanted the most. The following are a few simple steps that helped me along the way to getting my transplant.

 

 

A.    Make the Decision That You Want to Have a Transplanted Kidney – The very first thing that you have to do in order to get a kidney transplant is to decide that you want one. I know that this may sound really easy but it’s actually a tough choice to make if you’ve been living with failed kidneys and dialysis for so long that you’ve gotten used to that life. But as with anything in life, when we are unsatisfied with the way something is, there’s only a matter of time until we decide that enough is enough.

 

 

B.    Get a Referral from Your Nephrologist – The next step on how to get you a kidney transplant surgery is to set an appointment with your nephrologist in order to get a referral from them. This referral will be to a hospital and kidney transplant surgery team that specializes in organ transplants. This referral is not to be taken lightly and you should go into ready to be educated on what may be in store for you when and if you are a deemed a good candidate for moving forward in the process.

 

 

C.    Think About the Donor Route You Want to Take – This step was actually a pretty tough one for me. I had to choose between trying to find a living donor and waiting on a cadaveric kidney from a volunteer organ donor who passed away. Although I had a lot of people who were willing to be tested to see if they were matches to me, I decided to wait and receive a cadaveric kidney instead. The wait was a lot longer but I didn’t ever feel comfortable taking an organ from a living person who may need it later down the line.

 

 

And this choice will be something you have to deal with. And I honestly hope that it is an easy one for you to make. Always choose the option that is best for all who will be involved.

 

 

D.    Compliance and Reliance – I will say up front that if you have any habits such as smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol, or doing street drugs, you will not make a good candidate for a kidney transplant surgery. In fact, you’ll probably be denied because your inability to comply with simple instructions will be on full display. The best thing to do is to get these habits under control before you ever go and ask for the recommendation from your nephrologist.

 

 

Another area of compliance that your dialysis team, your nephrologist, and any potential kidney transplant surgical team that may be willing to take you on will look at will be your compliance record with your treatments. If you are on dialysis and you are known for skipping or shortening treatments, you will be seen as a non-compliant patient who may not be worthy of a transplant for a new kidney.

 

 

So if you’ve been known to skip or shorten treatments, or gain too much weight between treatments, now is the time to get that under control in order to present yourself as an ideal candidate to receive a transplant quickly.

 

 

These are just a few of the ways that you can put yourself or your loved one on the fast track to receiving a kidney transplant quickly. Just remember that you must be the one to take the situation by the horns in order to get the type of results that you want. Good luck and I hope that all goes well for you in your search for a new-to-you kidney.
