Live Donor Weight Loss Prior to Transplant

Thank you for asking! I completed my evaluation last week. I expect to hear soon about the decision of the selection committee. The surgeon I met with indicated that baring other test results he would recommend liver and kidney transplant. I thought the evaluation was pretty tiring and I have few symptoms now. Now I wait to see what will be the result.

@birdienanie I will be waiting to hear the results of your testing and if you become a transplant candidate. I was a liver transplant recipient and I know the waiting can seem to go on and on. My evaluation was done over a number of weeks, but perhaps that was because we were within a not unreasonable drive to the transplant center.
Have you had all of the tests required now? Most of them were pretty easy but a couple were unpleasant.
