Live Donor Weight Loss Prior to Transplant

I had my tests over one week except two. I have an additional consult and wrap up meeting next week. I thought the evaluation was rigorous- fasted 3-4 days till the afternoon for diagnostic testing and some tests with sedation. I am glad to have that part behind me. Thank you for asking. I will keep you posted on the decision.

@birdienanie My transplant center was at Mass General in Boston so perhaps the tests are different, but did you have the test where they took blood out of your arterial artery? That hurt. The other test I hated was when they put me in a glass booth and turned off the oxygen! I was amazed at how quickly that became difficult.
