  1. it does not work like that i am afraid, your possible donor will only get tested when your kidneys are 10% function or below, they wait as long as they can before testing
  2. Can't really have spicy foods anyways due to my hernia so i only go for Bratwurst!   Ah thats not good at all! Kidney Disease similar to mine or something completely different?   Yes for sure! Which is why i started this forum posting as the health care i get in Scotland currently is amazing especially kidney related and i'd hate to move to a country i'd get less care just due to the hospital i'm at, or a doctor who doesn't know much about my condition or wouid not get prescribed a tablet i'm on just now etc... and my brother being in Scotland as my first go to for testing for a transplant.
  3. thats great.   My girlfriend and i have been together 2 years and not a lot of tiff's going on, unless its about food - coming from Scotland my food palette is very different but i try new things :)
  4. Ah excellent! I will do it!   Yes so i've noticed, i will take down my replies on other forums that are similar to this topic.   Thank you for your replies.
  5. Hi John! Ah yes that makes sense. That is quite concerning as he would be the closest viable match to test first for a transplant for me.   I have had a look but being new here i'm not sure i have looked in the correct places.   I am glad to hear this! haha

    Thank you for the reply.   Yes it will not be before the start of 2021 thats for sure. i guess i will just have to wait at see next year what changes will be happening
  7. Hello John, thank you for your quick reply.   Yes it is quite a while away, i am a recent graduate in Computing Science and looking for around 3 years experience in Scotland first to be able to get a good job in Germany.   Yes i would be an employee and not self employed.   If i was not able to work it would be due to my condition getting worse (my kidneys really shutting down) and requiring dialysis or a transplant (also are you aware if transplant patients i.e myself could go back to Scotland to received a transplant from my brother/ could he come to Germany for it?   I indeed do have some savings but would not last very long if i was unable to work.   Yes i who knows where it will be in that time!   Yes my girlfriend is German, I am not a supporter of Brexit so i am hoping Scotland is able to go Independent!
  8. Hello everyone! I am new to the forum and looking for some information on this topic.   A little information about me - My name is Chris, i am 29 years old and i live in Scotland.   I am looking to move to Germany with my girlfriend in the future (2-5 years time possibly) but the thing is, i have some quite     severe medical conditions and have seen some countries reject patients with this living there due to being seen as *High Dependency*.   I have:- Polycystic Kidney Disease (basically my kidneys have multiple cysts and will keep growing) Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease ( i have about 30% kidney function and will keep failing until i need a transplant or dialysis) Hypertension (High Blood Pressure) Hiatus Hernia. So what i am wondering is if anyone has any information if it is possible for myself to move to Germany with my pre-exisiting consitions and will be able to be covered by insurance (and a possible price), or know of someone or where where i may be able to find out this information. Thank you,   Chris.   p.s i have posted this in other topics but thought i would great a more specific post in terms of this condition.
