im 40 years old male. in 2004 i was 34 when i had gotten end stage renal disease. it was cause by high blood pressure. in 2006 i decided i wanted to do home hemo dialysis. well during that time i had gotten a bad rash over my site due to the alcohol wipes. well that rash infection had gotten into my blood stream and had went into my heart. im from north bay area california at the time. well my primary doctor had found a spot in my heart and wanted to look into to it to see wha it was. well during that time my parents that is taking care of me dicided to move to southern california. so in 2007 when we moved to palm springs, ca area i had a heart attack. when i went to the hospital they had found a infection in my heart. the infection ate up both of my valves. aortic and mitic valves. i had to have open heart surgery right away before i die. so they replace both valevs with mechanical valves. then i had to have one bypass also. then where they had put one of the valves it was leaking due to where the infection had eaten up the tissue and it wasnt stiched up fully. so ihad to have another open heart surgery to repair that leakage. then they found a blockage in one of the arteries and had to put a stent in. now after all that had been done. now its 2010 and ive been waiting on the list for a transplant for 7 1/2 years. well now my sister wanted to donate her kidney to me. well loma linda had been beating around the bush with me saying i had gotten hep c. which was false. then they said i had to be cleared by my heart doctors which they did clear me. then i had seen a doctor at loma linda to be cleared after ive been cleared by my heart doctor. the doctor at loma linda had cleared me to be back on the list. so everything was cleared and they said i would be back on the list plus my sister was going to donate a kidney to me that we were a match. now things has stoped from loma linda. they said the clearance wasnt good enough and now they wanted second opinions about my heart. now there not saticfied with my heart situation and there finding a way to not do the transplant. im so tired of playing games with them and now im not going to have a transplant. im very dpressed and now i have to do dialysis for the rest of my life. i am unable to work for years and im not getting very much money from ssi( social security) im in a bad situation now that im not working. i need money now to live on and survive. my parents are elderlys and cant surport me for ever. i need help and need some kind of donation to survive. ive been praying to god for help and really need it bad. please help me! i dont know how long im going to be around if i dont get this help. what can i do? i would like to know what can be done for me? thanks for your time to read this message and that is my story.
