Hi all. I was blessed with a Kidney-Pancreas transplant about 22 months. The first year was a little challenging, but I am doing great now. I was wondering if it is okay to have 1-2 glasses of wine in the evening? I want to make sure that it will not damage my new Kidney.

I think that this Transplant Community forum is awesome and look forward to your thoughts and experiences.

How often would you have this one or two glasses of wine? Once in a while is one thing, but more than once a week would probably be a different matter. I wouldn't want to risk changing the absorption or timing of my meds. I also wouldn't want to put pressure on my new (now almost 11 years old) kidney.
