Usually this isn't a problem as it's a low risk (for healthy kidneys), or people are already on dialysis (the dye will be dialysed out), but for people with very poor function it's risky. I spoke to the radiologist who suggested I check with the dr who requested it, but warned that it may be necessary for the transplant to go ahead.
    My latest blood tests have also shown a drop in function from 13% to 11%.

    Ok, I am not going to lie: The ups and downs of this post had me clicking to the next page as quickly as possible just to see what happened next. I really do truly wish the best for you. I hope all goes well and it can all be worked out.

    Good on you for keeping the conversation going and fighting the fight as well as you have!

    I had a Cardio-Pulmonary Exercise Test last week and alpha fetoprotein blood test.
    Got a phone call yesterday saying that all tests are now complete and transplant can go ahead. I will have one final Multi Discipline Team meeting within the next few weeks where I will be given an actual date for the transplant. The transplant itself will be done end of Feb/beginning of March!
    I've been told similar before and delays have happened, but I'm quite certain that it will go ahead this time.

    Thank you all for your positive comments.
    After all the set backs and delays, I think I'll only really believe it's going to happen once they've give me an actual date when I see them within a few weeks.

    I'll update as soon as I get a date.
