Not trying to be rude here, as I certainly cannot come close to imagining what you are dealing with right now, but why didn't you change your eating or drinking habits after you found out that your kidneys were only functioning at 15% ? I totally get that people fail to heed their doctor's warnings extremely often, but learning about how rough of a state your kidneys were in would strike me as something to take really seriously.

Was there any particular reason why you didn't attempt to change anything?

Thanks for answering questions here, and I wish you the best of luck in your recovery.

Thanks for answering my question. I'm really sorry that this has happened to you.

Given that hindsight is 20/20, if you knew then what you know now, do you believe that would that have affected your earlier decision? And has this experience made you more likely to change your behaviors to effectively deal with a health issue? As some other commenters have said, your past behaviors might affect how you are evaluated as a transplant candidate, are you worried about that possibility?

Sorry for the barrage of follow-up questions, I hope that these aren't too personal or probing. I am just genuinely curious about how you are approaching this situation. Thanks again.
