I understand that the first step for being a kidney donor is to complete a health history questionnaire. Once it's complete, how long should it take to be contacted by a living donor coordinator. I'm waiting to get a status.

Hi @tjdog. I add my welcome. You'll notice that I moved your messages to an existing discussion of the same name. I did this so that you can meet others who are considering becoming a donor. Simply click VIEW & REPLY in the email notification to read through past messages. You'll meet others like @grammyx4 @fauneconner @fbgibbons672 and others.

Tjdog, Waiting to hear after you've completed the health questionnaire must feel long. Feel free to ask questions of members while you wait. If you don't mind telling a bit more about yourself, could you share what inspired you to apply to be a donor?

@tjdog I heard within a few days but I had a named recipient so I don't know if that made it go quicker or if I just got lucky? I'm excited for you and hope you hear soon!
