      So, how are you doing? I just got diagnosed with CKD in July, and wow!! Trying to keep to my diet. Not on Dialysis yet. Doctor says I will be. I have not even thought about a transplant. Don't know if I want to do that. Just trying to maintain right now and whole lot of praying.

          Husband has been officially put on the transplant list as of the first of September and I am nearing the end of my evaluation as a paired donor. The only books I can find regarding what to expect after transplant are eBooks. Anyone have any recommendations for transplant patient books?

            Hi DevonDahl - it's not a book, but there are some great articles on DaVita.com regarding transplants. Here is one if you haven't seen it already: https://www.davita.com/treatment-options/transplant.
            You could alos reach out to a local social worker to see if they suggest any books. Wishing you and your husband all the best!
