I didn't get a diagnosis now
Giedr söyl and Gintaras, seventeen girls during general preventive health check, said the diagnosis of high blood pressure. After more detailed investigations appeared diagnosis – renal failure.
Disease information, the girl's situation began to deteriorate suddenly years passed. The doctors had previously warned that this could happen at any time.
"We initially responded to the diagnosis quite calmly, and we thought we wouldn't be this fast, maybe the drugs would work, so we thought about it until it came true. The only problem is that when you have dialysis or transplantation, you can detect the disease," he recalled.
Amber is clear: even if they first hear of organ donation and donation, what the doctors say is not very clear.
We're all equal before health.
”According to today's perspective, we can say that we are completely green in this regard, our daughter started to adapt to our life and our attitudes towards donation 12 years after the onset of her illness, the man who said that the scale of life assessment has changed significantly, konu We are all equal before health, konu he said.
1 percent failure
When Giedrei offered to become a kidney donor for her daughter, she did not hesitate. The doctors believed that the transfer was successful at 99%. She then needed only one dialysis helping the girl to prepare for future organ transplants.
On the first day after the surgery, the research did not show a good thing, the condition was getting worse every day, but the doctors were still delaying the elimination of the unconscious kidneys in anticipation of an improvement.
According to parents, transplant surgery itself is not complicated, but it is only a small part of the health riddle. It is very important how the body adopts a strange body – it is used to prescribe a wide variety of drugs.
"The kidneys did not make much effort to feed, but did not," he repented.
Giedre does not think his efforts have disappeared. If he could, he'd do it again.
Your father's kidney was not suitable
Two weeks later, the unborn and functioning kidney was removed. Dialysis started: three hours a week after four hours to clean the body toxins and the girl can live.
"Her health was restored to normal, necessary documents were processed, and the girl was put on the so-called waiting list for transplantation, but it was true that her father's kidney should actually be in place, and several studies were carried out to help determine the appropriateness of this, and even went to Warsaw. said he could fit, "Giedrece said.
A little later the family learned to live in a rhythm: dialysis – school – home. The house of Gudauskams was the strongest. When you wanted to explain what it meant, there was a long pause.
After a break, the tears mother began to say: olduğun If you take your child to dialysis and see how difficult it is, understand that the child will die if you do not dialysis, so that the only chance the child can have is organ donation: the perception of the child going to the store. you will not receive even if you have a million that is dependent on other people's awareness and willingness to help … "
It was considered inevitable
He then received confirmation for both spouse organ donations and was also a free blood donor. They drew attention to how much blood was needed during the transplant of her daughter in the womb of her mother, but for the lack of materials she missed even 8 hours.
Gediminas, "Do what you trust others. Your knowledge of the donation came from your experience."
Ė The fact that information about organ transplants is much more than the time when our path begins, G Giedr "Paantrina said.
How did my daughter react to the whole situation? According to his parents, he was forced to grow older than his peers. The girl inevitably embraced everything almost every day, even though her hands were hungry – all adults survived these procedures.
"A strong girl" emphasized that her daughter supports each other. "" They can't be broken at the same time. "When someone is emotionally weaker, others help and her daughter has difficult moments, but she's close.
The family is open: the questions could not be avoided for 12 years, why did I do, why did we do this?
Interrupting can even be a burden
According to Gudauskis, they were fortunate enough to have a relatively short donor kidney. The ability to live without dialysis is also accelerated by the fact that the kidney is necessary for the child. If the appropriate parameters of the organ donor and the pending person are met, they always have priority.
The family received a lot of calls about the potential donor. Sometimes they didn't hear a sentence once a month, but sometimes the doctors questioned whether they would have kidneys.
"This is a very logical thing, because when we go to a hospital for more detailed research, we will eliminate the possibility of another person, who may be more suitable for the kidney." Said.
Slimming or toothache can also eliminate the possibility of transplantation. Transplantation of the body is only possible for a healthy person.
Preference is for children
The family was expected to call a possible donor at night. Provide a limited time to visit Kaunas or Vilnius.
Three recipients are selected for one organ, then a large number of trials are performed and the most suitable candidate for the donor organ is selected.
Perhaps five times or more, Gudauskai's daughter was a step away from transplanting, but considering the potential risk of kidney transplantation to another person.
Az The final decision on transplantation was almost taken by ourselves, but since we were trained, we wanted to minimize the final risk. Even when everything was very good and not good for us, when there were any doubts, we abandoned it iy – a difficult situation. The wife remembered the scene.
Giedrei was deeply embraced by an unpleasant sense of waiting when all the candidates were in a single room, searching for possible transport.
"We all share the same fate with our competitors. Some adults didn't say:" I'll probably give this little girl some. "When I came with hope, I became very nervous and burned again," she remembered.
Gudauskai has repeatedly seen how a human being has come to the prospect of almost future hope, where health and psychological well-being are critical.
Amber said she understood why, because dialysis procedures support life, but she emotionally affects and squashes heavily.
Three weeks of anxiety
Good luck with the right donor family, smiled after waiting two years.
”Some studies are good, second, third, and hope is growing with each study, because there's a lot of research done before transplantation,“ says Giedrė.
True, after the transplantation, the spouses still had to be reminded – in the first week, her daughter's health condition was very bad and then slightly balanced. Although some patients have a good follow-up the next day as a healthy person.
Three weeks later her condition began to improve.
His father said, ilen We never thought there would be such a body, em and the kidney remembered euphoria when the transplanted insect started.
