Sligo man’s life ‘on hold’ as he waits on second transplant


A Sligo man who is waiting on a second kidney transplant has said that while you are on dialysis your life is “on hold”.

44 years-old Brian Stewart from Sea View Park in Sligo town is back on dialysis for the second time in his life after the failure of a kidney that he had received.

That transplant had given a new lease of life for 10 years but now he is back to a regime of having to be hooked up to a dialysis machine at Sligo Hospital for four hourss, three days a week.

Brian, who spoke to the Sligo Weekender while actually on dialysis, said: “After this you would be fairly fatigued.”

See this week’s Sligo Weekender newspaper for Brian’s story – in shops now.
