I have had a successful kidney transplant for 25 years, AMA!
I received my first and only kidney transplant in 1995 when I was 21, and I've been taking anti-rejection meds (immunosuppressants) ever since. I have seen quite a few "I just got a kidney transplant this week" type AMAs, I thought it might be interesting and useful for people to get information from someone who has had a transplanted kidney for decades. If you just got a transplant, or you know someone who needs one, I can tell you all about the horrible drugs, the side effects, the long term issues, and quality of life issues you'll be looking at for the (hopefully) many decades ahead.
