...I'm hoping I will be able to give my kidney to him, provided that I'm a tissue & blood match. But I am a little concerned if I would get MS later on in life (I've read it's a 1 in 22 chance genetically to get MS if your parent has it??) and if I would be able to manage with one kidney and also to have children in the next 5 years....
i just went thru this with my sister (she has Lupus). she needed a kidney transplant.
i was all set to be the donar when my mother said "today i have one child with kidney problems and tomorrow i will have two children with kidney problems". i couldn't go thru with it after that.
in the end, it added maybe a couple months to my sister's wait. now she has a new kidney and i still have both of mine.
your mother may feel the same about you.
