I was presented a decision this week, quite taking the immunosuppressant’s and loose my transplanted kidney and go back on dialysis and let my immune system come back to full strength to help fight the cancer or take the risk that the cancer will kill me. I am coming to the terms that the life as I know will never be again, I have three young sons that I need to stay around to help raise. After 5 radiation treatments the only pain I feel is to my soul, I was lucky and spent only one year on dialysis and what a miserable year it was. The radiologist has treated other transplant recipients’ and told me that the ones on immunosuppressant’s had cancer come back 100%. I stayed down in San Francisco this week during treatment, I hate being away from my family, being by myself and dealing with all this. I am really scared.
