Chronic Kidney Failure

Chronic Kidney Failure

Personal message

My name is Lisa.  I am 44 years old and have been diagnosed with stage 4 kidney disease.  It started 8 years ago when I gave birth at 27 weeks after developing Hellp syndrome which is associated with Preeclampsia.  By the hand of God, both my daughter and I survived.  

However, future complications due to this condition have now lead me to where I am now...fighting chronic kidney failure.  It has started to affect me on many levels, physically, emotionally & financially and I have been told that if I wait another 1/2months for medical aid to kick in it could be fatal should I suffer another bout of kidney failure.  As of this moment, i have now been admitted into Olivedale Clinic for surgery to unblock my kidneys as it is life threatening.  

At this stage I will be heading for the transplant list, as both my kidneys appear to be severly damaged.  After numerous surgeries, doctor visits, follow-ups, dialysis, blood transfusions etc it seems that my health is just deteriorating at a rapid rate.  I now weigh only 48 kg and in so much pain and fatigued that I have not been able to work for 8 months now.  

The funds raised will help cover treatments, doctor visits, medications, necessary supplements, dietician to help me start eating again & general monies to help settle all the many previous bills we have accumulated thus far. 

The burdens are just too much for our family to carry on our own and any help/donations to my cause would be a heaven-sent and so much appreciated...no matter how small.  

Update - 01/04/2019

By the grace of God,  Lisa's Sepsis count has come down (after a month’s hospital stay) quite drastically and the Dr appears much more confident about proceeding with surgery tomorrow!  It looks like she will be having surgery to replace stent and laser both kidneys.  Not too sure how long the procedure will be and how much they will get through at this stage…but it’s a start and doctors will reassess once this has taken place.  We just hold the biggest of thumbs and pray that it’s onwards and upwards from here on!

Update - 11/03/2019

Lisa has now been discharged from Olive dale Clinic however she did leave with a slight temperature and one of her counts had gone up again.  The Doctor said she can go home and try recover there taking her antibiotics as prescribed, but if she has a flare up again and is not feeling well again she will have to go back and see the docto, for now,or now she is at home resting. 

Update 07/03/2019:

Lisa had to have her kidneys unblocked on the first day of admission at Olive Dale Clinic.  She could only withstand a 20-minute procedure due to the severity of the blockage and the Sepsis that had set in.  She has been in the clinic going on 10 days now and has been treated with very strong antibiotics to get rid of an infection.  So far, she has responded well to treatment and is making good progress.  Due to the sepsis though she has got a few challenges ahead in regards to her healing moving forward.  She is still battling with extreme fatigue, battling with walking and is being treated by Physio to help relieve pain and get the muscles working again.  She has also been diagnosed with PTSD which is a result of the Sepsis, so she is now seeing a psychiatrist to work through these challenges.  She will also be needing a dietician to work out a new diet plan for her so that she can be nourished with the correct foods to help build up her immune system in order to withstand the major kidney surgeries that will be coming up in the near future.  This will be to remove numerous kidney stones in there that are currently still causing severe pain. We continue to pray that she will stay infection free for the next 2-3 weeks so that the scheduled surgeries will go ahead as planned.  Having said all of this she still has a long way to go but we remain positive that she will come out stronger and make a full recovery.  Thank you once again to all who have supported Lisa through this very difficult and trying time.  The family would like to thank all for their love and support which is greatly appreciated, it has definitely lifted her spirits and given her the will to keep up the good fight!
