I'm reaching out to this forum in an attempt to find my boyfriend some support. He has had renal failure since birth due to bilateral hydronephrosis and has undergone 2 kidney transplants and has done years of dialysis in the past. He got his last kidney transplant over a year and a half ago, and that is working well. Over the summer he developed avascular necrosis in both hips due to chronic steroid use and had one of his hips replaced and is waiting a couple of months to have the other done. He is 30 and is quite depressed at this point in time and feels very alone. He has mentioned to me that he wishes he had someone in his life who has been through some similar things as him, because he feels so alone in everything he's been through. I don't know if anyone here has had similar experiences and would be interested in being a support buddy for him.

Let me know if anyone has any other ideas to help him. Thanks so much!

I know it's a late reply but he's not alone. How is he getting on with his function and stuff. I promise you, If he looks after himself, drinks plenty of fluids and eats the right foods. He will be fine, I had my Kidney transplant at the age of 17 and I'm 27 August. It's been 10 years touchwood, everything is ok. I hope this gives you and your boyfriend hope Kaylee smile
