Had my second appointment.  Had several more blood tests including a fasting one. Luckily I was first in the queue for that one, so could then go and have breakfast before before my next test. I had a kidney ultra sound scan. There was a small scar on the top of my right kidney but apparently that is not unusual and more than likely meant I had an infection as a child and was probably never even aware that I had. It should not affect my ability to donate.

I saw the Consultant Nephrologist who checked blood pressure, weight, height and general fitness. Again the question of my weight came up. 

I understand it could be another 2 months before the evaluation is finished.

I am not sure what is next on the list … I wait to hear…

    Hi Tushar,
    Thank you for making contact. I am so sorry but as much as I understand your situation it is illegal to sell or buy a kidney here, so I cannot help. I do so hope circumstances change for you and you are able to get back to a stable life.
    All the best

    I almost never leave a response, but i did a few searching and wound up here Further tests for Altruistic Kidney Donor Evaluation | – Give a Kidney – be an altruistic donor. And I do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright. Is it simply me or does it seem like some of these remarks come across as if they are written by brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are writing at additional sites, I would like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list of the complete urls of all your shared pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

    What a nasty person you are. I have authorised your comment just to show people what a vile person you are and hope it shames you. But probably it wont.
