From Needles to Scalpels...Renal Autotransplantation is a Go!

Acupuncture did not help my flank pain at all (on a side note, it did help my knee pain, but I found it to be uncomfortable and not-at-all relaxing, which was different from most people in the room who were fast asleep during treatments). After a month of needles, it was back to the drawing board. I talked with Urology Doc at The Cleveland Clinic, he confirmed my diagnosis of Loin-Pain Hematuria Syndrome, and we scheduled my renal autotransplantation surgery for August 1st. The surgery will be 6 hours, and I will be in the hospital for a week, then at home healing after that. I will blog about it all when the time comes. After the kidney surgery, we will plan the C1-C2 fusion for my cervical instability.



If you don't remember what LPHS is or you need a recap, along with a detailed explanation of the surgery, visit my other posts:



Hope you are enjoying March! Love and hugs!
Happy World Kidney Day!

Did you have the surgery? How did it go? How are you feeling? Similar story to you; EDS, nutcracker, LPHS, etc. Scheduled for auto-transplant next month. Would love to hear about your experience!

I'm curious how your surgery went too! I have nutcracker syndrome and researching different types of treatment. Let us know how you are doing!

Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.
