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!
