the tests arent comepleted yet for transplant assessment but its looking very liekly he will be put on the list. however his kidneys are causing concern. he is out putting more fluid than he is taking in. is now on restricted fluid intake. if his kidney function doesnt get sorted out then he may have to stay in harefield till a heart becomes available. but as dh is tall and low body weight the doc has said it may cause problems in finding a suitable heart for him. but his heart needs to be repalced as its causing the problems for his kidney and liver. far too much to take in, and i;m not sure i'm explaing it properly.

Oh hon I know nothing about the medical side of DH's diagnosis but just wanted to send you enormous hugs and good luck vibes.

Do you feel as though it has been prperly explained to you by the Drs?

Perhaps you'd have a clearer idea if you spoke to one of DH's specialists ? It might help you get your head around it a bit.

Is DH on dialysis for his poor kidney function ?

Gobbledigook Wed 16-Feb-05 20:43:57

Misdee, I always struggle to know what to say but just at least want you to know I'm thinking of you.

ImuststopdrinkingBlossomhill Wed 16-Feb-05 20:43:58

Can you not phone and ask to speak to one of the doctors to clarify what dh said.

lunavix Wed 16-Feb-05 20:44:38

oh hun {{{{{{{{{{{hugs}}}}}}}}}}}} poor poor you and dh

ImuststopdrinkingBlossomhill Wed 16-Feb-05 20:44:44

Couldn't you phone and ask if it's possible to chat to the doctor or even the nurse. Just someone who knows medically what is happening.

Sorry to hear this - sending hugs to the both of you.

ImuststopdrinkingBlossomhill Wed 16-Feb-05 20:45:09

Sorry misdee I didn't think my first post came out.

misdee Wed 16-Feb-05 20:45:22

i may get a chance to speak to his docs but his mum will probably do it for me.

not going in tomorrow, so fingers crossed he does get out for monday, even if its just for the birth.

snafu Wed 16-Feb-05 20:45:31

Misdee, don't think I can say anything useful but sending good good wishes to you and your dh (((())))

Tinker Wed 16-Feb-05 20:46:18

Sorry to hear all this misdee, think you are amazingly strong.

ImuststopdrinkingBlossomhill Wed 16-Feb-05 20:46:32

Fingers crossed tightly for you misdee x

kid Wed 16-Feb-05 20:46:49

I'm sorry to hear this Misdee, you have been through so much already. I agree with the others, could you speak to one of the Drs to get them to explain everything to you?
Wishing you both some good news soon.
