    Congrats, Brian. My girlfriend had a kidney transplant last year, that's a rough thing to go through.

    Well I lost a kidney to cancer was born with a Wilms tumour and did'nt know till I started pissing blod at 40,2 years ago and more power to him for doing what he is able to. I know how hard it is managing protein,creatine levels as I also have blood tests ,but every month. I am 42 and only been back training 10 months after 2 years off as I will so ill,had surgery and 6 months of chemo.

    Hardest thing has been legs,squatting weight now back up to 220lbs for 6 reps but my abdominals are still nowhere near as strong as they were.

    2 May 25.jpgPlus his surgeon did a fantastic job,must have been laproscopic ,mine was an open nephrectomy and is a mess compared to him.

    Wish him the best of luck!

    if you read my most recent comment in this thread im totally with you that yeah its risky but if hes doing his check ups regularly like every 3 months as he talks about then im sure there minimum damage at the very worst.....hes just doingthebest he can to staying healthy while doing what he really loves to do

    Seriously folks, how sad that a young guy has lost a kidney. It is one of the most serious operation somewhere along the lines of Brain surgery and heart transplants. And then to wake up and put the poison in your body...Kevin Levrone said it best, lucky to have gotten out alive although who know, he may end up with problems soon enough. That said, he wouldn't go back to the drip...Natural baby. Natural is the way to go.
    with respect towards your opinion im sure you know its a personal choice to go through what he chose to after that surgery. i cant speak for the guy but its ok to take performing enhancing drugs as long as your "A-ok" so to speak....but if i were him i would think of it hard and long...but hey atleast hes doing his check ups every 3 months like he says right guys???

    I feel ya on the wake up call, but Brian is pretty sharp, I think he knows exactly what hes doing. Don't assume the worst. Like I said before the kidney came out back in the eearly '90s. That was quite a while ago.
