I am christygb’s grateful sister who will be tested for kidney/liver transplant in Oct. I appreciate this site to get information prior to testing.

This is exciting @birdienanie and @christygb. I think this may be the first time that we've had the opportunity to support both the potential donor and the recipient in the Transplant support group here on Connect. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

@christygb any more questions before you go for testing in October?
@birdienanie, it would be great to learn more about you too. What has led to your needing a double organ transplant? How are you doing?

@birdienanie, I received a simultaneous liver and kidney transplant in 2009. (1 surgery, 2 organs from same deceased donor). I am available to share from my experience if it will be helpful to you.
Hugs to you and your sister.
