Hi everyone. Long Time no see! How are you all? Lockdown has been pretty hard for me. I've been stuck at home 2 years in June and i've been shielding since last March.. I finally got a kidney appointment for Thursday at 10am after a whole year of no appointments. I'm scared and anxious about going to the hospital especially during lockdown and covid. I hope my kidney is still the same percent and I hope I don't need any diet restrictions or fluid restrictions or any kidney medicines. I will keep you all updated. Take care and sending much love and hugs to everyone xx

    Hi @Lauren80 welcome back, i've been to hospital a number of times since March and i have to say they seemed to be the safest places on earth, just follow the advice from @janer1967 and you'll be fine.
    my advice is given freely and is correct to the best of my knowledge.

    My daughters grandmother lives in Wales and has just spent the past 5 weeks in hospital. She is on the extremely vulnerable list and had the shielding letter at the start of first lockdown. I know my daughters were really worried that she would catch Covid from hospital. She came home yesterday and didn't catch it.
