Eedris Abdulkareem, a Nigerian rapper, has recounted a terrifying experience he and his wife had during his kidney transplant.
In an interview with TVC ‘E Splash,’ the rapper revealed how, after nearly 14 successful tests, he and his wife almost had an argument.
According to him, the doctors discovered something wrong with his wife during the last test, which could deter her from donating her kidney to her husband.
The rapper admitted that it was a frightening experience for him because he felt weakened and saddened by the news. This was due to the hospital’s inability to source donors, so he had to rely on a family member.
“I was told I had Stage 4 kidney problem and the doctor said the best thing was for me to do a kidney transplant.
I asked him if it’s possible for the hospital to give me donors and he said I had to source for donor and it has to be my family. My wife who was with me asked if she can he a donor for me. I was shocked because we never discussed this.
She did the first/second test and she was compatible. We had 15 more test and it was all successful.
There was this last one on my dailysis bed, doctor said he saw something in her that might make me look for another donor. I was so sad and started praying. But after conducting tests and taking it to a professor, she was considered fit for the transplant”.
