I found out I had PKD in October 2015 when I was 29 years old. I was going to become a living donor for my father who also has PKD. I had an initial ultrasound, and followed up with my doctor. She then informed me that I also have PKD. I was devastated just knowing that I couldn’t help my father and worried for my own health. My father is now 58 years old and on dialysis three days a week, four hours at a time. He found out he had PKD in 2008 when he was 47. I’m trying to help him find a donor, while also trying to eat healthy and take care of myself to help slow the progression of my disease. I hope I can help spread awareness and that someday there will be a cure.
