  • Help me with a decision

    I need to make a decision on whether I will choose Kidney/pancreas or Kidney alone. Has anyone chosen KP and are you worried. I was told that, for me, this choice would give me an 75% survival rate. The Kidney alone would be an 85% survival chance. These numbers scare me.

    Hi Ellen. I just read your post about KP transplant vs. just kidney transplant. Are you sure you are stating your percentage numbers correctly? It seems to me the %s should be reversed, 85% with KP vs. 75% with only kidney.

    Who told you this and IF this is what they told you, do you have some other conditions complicating your disease? Is it possible you misunderstood what you have been told? I cannot read your profile so I have no other information on your current situation.
