Have FSGN, transplant failed, on dialysis. Life expectancy?

Hello- My husband was diagnosed with fsgn 10 yrs ago,he has gone on dialisis the full transplant the failure back to dialisis again. He was 24 when diagnosed. Our doctors here know very little about the disease and can t really tell us what his life will be like from here on out. We will try to get transplant again but dr s don t seam real interested in trying again. We would like to ave a life again, possibly try for a baby? Is that possible? What kind of life expectancy does he have? With all of his medications are his sperm still active? Thank you

hi there. FSGS ( or FSGN) as you may call it can have recurrence after transplant. if the transplant failed very soon ( less than one year after transplant it may not be worth trying again for transplant but if it lasted more than 3 to 5 years you may want to go again for transplant. life expectancy is 5 to 10 year on HD and 10 to 20 yr on transplant. you can have kids. test for semen analysis . can go for in vitro fertilization if not able to get pregnant naturally
