Meet The Father-Of-2 With 6 Kidneys Who Has A New Organ Transplant Every 5 Or 10 Years

A father had five kidney transplants in his life — and still has all of the organs inside him.

Darren Ferguson, 37, had his first transplant aged just five years old – and has no idea how many are currently in his body, as none have been removed.

He was born with a blocked kidney which medics noticed three weeks after he was born, and was diagnosed with chronic key stage five renal failure.

He was treated at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London where he met Princess Diana as a teenager, and has had a kidney transplant about once every five to ten years.

Despite the massive health obstacles he faced, Darren has gone on to lead a ‘fulfilling’ life, and defied doctors who said it was unlikely he would ever have children.

He has revealed he’s nicknamed ‘Robocop’ by his family due to the equipment he needed to keep him alive.

Father-of-two Darren married his wife Amanda ten years ago, and they have two daughters, Imani, aged three, and Briella, aged two.

Darren said: ‘The life I live now is a lot different from what it used to be. I now have the freedom to do what I want to do. I’m a lot fitter, healthier, and travelling the world.’

He has had five kidney transplants – the maximum number that any kidney transplant patient in Britain has received.
