I was born with Traumatic Spinal Cord Injury @ birth level T-8. I am paralyzed from the waist down. Due to the injury to my spine, my left kidney was damaged and I had it removed in 1973 because of hypertension issues.
I carried my son on 40% kidney function in my right kidney in Dec. 1988 he was born. I did not have any problems for 2 years then I was diagnosed with FSGS. I went on dialysis Dec. 1999 and had my transplant in June 2003.
