Visiting hospitals has been a major part of my life the last 25 years.
Since my blood pressure dramatically increased in 1983 resulting in the Polycystic Kidney diagnosis, and about ten years later gave me Severe Heart Attacks during my stay in Asia/Singapore, and thus the diagnosis Chronic Renal Disease and Heart Failure, my only option was Simultaneous Heart and Kidney Transplantation for Patients with End-stage Heart and Renal Failure. Ten years later I am still alive and have had a good life.
But hospitalizations for control and treatment of side effects from the operation and long term use of immunosuppressive medicines, become more and more relevant and an important side of the Quality-of-life assessment.
A short break in blogging is thus a consequential side effect of long survival lifestyle. If possible I will do some mobile blog-posting through my iPhone from Rikshospitalet the coming days.
