It's going to take a while. I'm still napping quite a lot. A lot of my wounds are still oozing due to my body retaining excess fluid. I'm having dialysis done every other day to help my kidneys kick start back into life. I'm very sore all over, especially my ribs seeing as I can't bend over. I'm making small, steady progress every day and am hoping I can be out of hospital before the start of December. :)
Sounds indeed like total soreness from being taken apart and stitched back together :cool:
It is good to hear you are making progress and I do hope you can spend the holiday season at home in relatively good shape. Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Things are going well. Dialysis has been stopped due to improvements in kidneys, all my lines are now out. Physios seem happy with me and my bloods are stable. Talk of sending me home now...

"Talk of sending me home now" Stunningly good news. It looks like all that work you put in before the Transplant seems to be paying off. Nice one!

Excellent. Presumably you're on immunosuppressants, so you'll be shielding very very thoroughly. Hope your recovery keeps going well.

A lot of things heading in the right direction. Physios are happy with my walking and stair climbing, dietician said eat as much as possible, transplant nurse gave me the discharge talk and made sure I know which meds to take when. The only thing holding me back is my iron levels are a bit on the low side and my kidneys are still a bit up and down after dialysis. The doctors want my kidneys mainly to balance out before they think of sending me home. So just waiting now for the green light... I'm hoping I don't have to have dialysis again...
