A forty years old margaret njeri has had two kidney transplant which means she actually has four kidneys. However they have all failed. It has been hundreds of days since she could not pee, actually it was her biggest desire for her to be able to urinate like once she used to, yes she do get pressed but think it's mental because the ultra sound shows that there is nothing in the bladder, she can sit on the toilet but nothing will come out.
She got ill in may 2010 but result from nearby clinics were not conclusive. She had symtoms like fatique and puffiness in the face, then in december the same year she got very ill. This time it was worse. She underwent to a series of tests and the nephrology team at one of the refferal hospital discovered that both of her kidneys had failed, she was placed on dialysis twice a week for 18 months. The process takes four hours, the procedure not only drains the excess fluid but also energy from her body.
She will continue with dialysis untill the day she will raise enough money 5.5 million for a second transplant in india, the kidney will be donated by her sister. This time they will remove one of the other kidney and replace it. After that she will be on immunosuppresants and ant rejection medicines for the rest of her life, they will cost ksh 50 thausands per month.
