Kedar Pudasaini on Unemployment After Transplantation

Name: Kedar Pudasaini, 40

Date of Transplantation:

Donor: Mother

Place of Transplantation: #

Kedar Pudasaini lived in Nuwakot with his 3 kids, a wife who has now been with him for 15 years, and the rest of his family who worked in agriculture. That changed after being diagnosed with a disease that could lead to kidney failure. He started on hemodialysis in ’66 but only did so for 3 months. After the dialysis treatment he had a kidney transplant. He still could not work with his family after the transplant so his parents support him. He moved to Kathmandu to be closer to the hospitals. Kedar states that it is much easier to get treatment in Nepal than it is going to India to get the same treatment. He would still like to be able to be self-supportive and wants to be trained so he can work for himself. The Aarogya Foundation could help him do that. Kedar has been participating in Aarogya’s activities since his transplant. So far he has participated in 3 transplant games. He likes how the foundation helps connect with other transplant patients and raise awareness. Whereas he could be feeling depressed he feels refreshed, laughing and chatting with Aarogya’s members and other patients. He says that Dr. Pukar’s attitude was very helpful. He likes how Ani Choying, Maha Jodi, and Dr. Pukar talk to the patients and felt peaceful after talking to them. Currently he goes to the Bir Hospital for regular check-ups.

He wants to tell people that you can still live with one kidney and by donating you can save someone’s life. He feels that brain death donations is a very good thing and should be implemented. He wants to tell patients to check-up regularly and listen to the doctors. He states that not all patients are reliable and can blame the doctors for their problems. But doctors should also be careful and responsible and nurses and staff should keep files updated and organized. People should work together to build society and shouldn’t bring each other down. Patients should investigate whether it is really the doctor’s fault and if it is they should speak out. He thinks it is much easier for patients to get treatment now and they should trust the system.
