My urethra exploded like a water hose and i had a gallon of fluid in my body which made me weigh 12lbs. I needed 18 reconstruction surgeries before i was three and around that time had my first kidney transplant. That kidney lasted 9 years, i had dialysis for a week or two before i had my second kidney transplant. That one lasted a bit, untill i had gum surgery and didnt take the andtibiotics right.
