Kidney transplant in India gives Nigerian patient a second chance at life
My name is Lorraine, 35 years old from Nigeria. I had end-stage renal disease and was on dialysis for the past three years. Even before dialysis, I was very ill and tired all the time. I could barely manage my daily activity because of that. Getting a kidney transplant was the ultimate solution for me to live a pain-free and healthy life again. But the wait on the transplant list is long. Therefore, my family started looking for living donor in the family to help me out of my pain. If we were a match, my sister was willing to donate her kidney to me.
I came to know about MedicoExperts through my sister who was looking for kidney transplant centres. She heard on the radio about MedicoExperts OPD and surgical camps. We visited the MedicoExperts connect centre in Nigeria and shared with them our reports and our desire for undergoing kidney transplant. They informed us that we would need to travel to India for the procedure and we were more than ok to travel to India. The planning was long because of the strict rules regarding kidney transplant in India. And through the whole process, Medicoexperts kept in touch constantly and was very helpful.
The whole planning and the transplant procedure were smooth. When we met our surgeon and the team, we knew we were in good hands. Both, my sister and I had no complication and the donated kidney also worked for me. The hospital staff and MedicoExperts team were very caring and helpful through the entire journey. Everyone was wonderful and they treated us both very nicely. God bless them.
