    Just received a letter for an appointment for surgical out-patients on 28th January 2019. I think this will be the appointment where they will give me the actual date of the transplant.

    Wow, Pete! It appears I have missed out on almost a whole year of this drama! I guess that's what I get for reading the forum on my phone via Tapatalk. It's not as easy to keep up with new posts. Anyway, I am happy that it looks like it's going to happen! I hope everything goes perfectly for you and your dad, if he's indeed going to be the donor. Let's hope there will be no more changes to the plan..That has to have been exceedingly stressful! I guess in about a month we will be hearing of the date they will set for the surgery! We are all pulling for you!

    Had the appointment with the transplant surgeon today and have been booked in for Tuesday 5th March for the operation. Both me and my dad (the donor) will stay in hospital the night before the operation. My dad will have his kidney removed from about 8.30am and I will have it transplanted about 11.30am. I probably won't see my dad again until I get home (around a week later), as he will be taken to either the kidney ward, or surgical ward, but I'll have to initially go on to High Dependency ward due to my sleep apnoea. By the time I'm due to return to kidney ward, my dad will be home as he is expected to return home the day after his operation.

    Wow! Prayers across the water. Your decades long story is moving and heart wrenching. How beautiful that your father is your donor. Your surgical date is on my calendar. Blessings.

    So happy to hear this, Pete! You and your dad will be in my thoughts, and best wishes for a smooth transition. We'll be anxiously awaiting the news that it is done and you are both safe at home.

    Grrrrr!
    After waiting 3 years for a transplant date, they have postponed it for a further 2 weeks (now March 19th).
    The surgeons have decided that due to my increased risks (mostly from bleeding) they are doing the operation at the same time for me and my father. It was originally planned for my dad to go to theatre in the morning and for me to go around lunchtime. But as I am at increased risk of not being able to receive my dad's kidney, they want to begin by cutting me open and if all seems well, they will begin to operate on my dad. Therefore they need 2 operating theatres and 2 surgical teams and the soonest date is a further 2 weeks away.
