    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    I'm just starting the process for a simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplant. I've had type-1 diabetes for 32 years and now, in only a few months, my kidneys have given out. So I'm pre-dialysis but have started the process for new organs. Would love to talk to people who are in the same boat or have been here before. My wife and I have a blog too: www.brandenstransplant.com Branden

    Hi Branden, Kristi and I exchanged one email about the blog. Welcome to this group. (To be honest, it is not very incredibly active, but the questions and thoughts and ideas are genuine. Maybe you can stir up more interest in this group. While I don't really want to encourage cross-posting, a lot of renal failure patients with tye I also post on the Kidney Disorders group. So you might want to glance at that one now and then to see what applies to your case.) Keep in touch, both of you. This business affect the entire family as much as the patient. John
