I have a genetic kidney disease that comes from my paternal side of the family. I am in stage 5 and have been on the transplant waiting list for nearly 3 years. I have chosen with the advice of my doctors to forgo dialysis treatment until my kidney function is nearly gone. Right now my kidneys are functioning at around 8 to 13%. It goes back and forth. Because of heart issues I am at a race for time to get a kidney.
