How do you communicate with others?

I have been bipolar 2 ever since I was 13 years old. I've been through a lot in my life. I adopted by first family then my mom died from kidney cancer. Then I grew up without a mom. I was abandoned without having a mom most of my life.My first adopted dad abused me. He raped me and he took away my virginity and my childhood. I got adopted by another set of foster parents while living there.

Advice- Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma

Good morning, looking for some advice. I found out last week I have Mets to multiple areas in my chest and abdomen as well as my thyroid. Still have a brain scan to do but the treatment plan is:

Opdivo every 4 weeks and Cabo daily. I'm looking for advice in 2 areas.

1) Lifestyle and diet recommendations to minimize side effects.
2) Products to buy to help ease the side effects.

Thanks in advance for any help! #Cancer

I'm new here!

Hi, my name is Chrissy. I'm here because I am a stroke survivor and a kidney cancer survivor at the young age of 44. I was introduced to this website by a family member and thought this may be a great place to meet others who have some of the same struggles as me dealing with anxiety, depression, and chronic pain. Looking for guidance and excited to meet new people on the same journey as me❤️

If I knew then what I know now#

#Cancer I was diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma and had my kidney removed in September. Not a major deal really. No chemo, no radiation Just follow up with you urologist every year. Well one of my blood tests were elevated after surgery, not getting a real answer from anybody so I'm just assuming it's my new normal. Nobody gives me a straight answer but they send me off to a nephrologist. Now I have chronic kidney disease. If I realize that this was going to be one of the side effects I would never had my kidney removed. I just feel like I went through this for nothing!

What has your experience with a kidney or liver transplant been like?

Like any surgery, we know there are many benefits and risks to consider when you are eligible for an organ transplant, including the process of finding a donor, which can be long and challenging.

Have you or your loved one received (or considered) a kidney or liver transplant as an option for treating kidney failure or primary hyperoxaluria type 1 (PH1)? If so, share your experiences with the process, including any hopes and worries, in the comments below. ⬇️

What Life #autoimmune hepatits #Cirrhosis #Possible kidney cancer #Broken pelvic hip bone #Osteoporosis

I was already overwhelmed with dealing with the cirrhosis and all the st that comes with it. Then I they think they saw something on the MRI kidney then I broke my hip bone. I got doctors coming left and right. Some trying to change medication I been on for years. No not doing that talk to my GI man 1st Physically Therapy can’t drive they don’t want to give you pain meds nothing but tramadol. I got other things happening too. So I have time for nothing but do the stuff I have to do to me make phone call for meds or dr appointment virtual visit and they take the good sweet time coming to the visit. Like you have nothing else to do. I have to cook because I can’t eat no salt so eating out is not a option. I can’t even eat anything if I visit my family. They say I just used a little. What is it you don’t understand about none. So I have to bring my own food. And all this time I been on lock down the only person to come and see if I needed anything was my daughter who is working 6 days a week 10 to 12 hours. You got about 5 more people no job nothing. Well am done. For today.
