Hi @gregorytremblay
I’m the new Community Director of Connect and am catching up on some of the discussions. I’d like to hear more about your experience. What led you to become a kidney donor?

An organ Donor must be a non-smoker for at least one year.  With such seriousness, it took me only 4 days to quit, and I haven’t touched it since, saving buckets of money.  Hehe

Good for you! That’s one of best “why I quit smoking” stories I’ve heard yet. When do you donate your kidney and how long was the recovery period?

Confidential on where and when. Sorry. I have to guess as to the recovery
time as I am retired and required regular pain medications for years, so I
don’t have actual dates to refer to. To return to the career I had before
my accident, I think about 2 months. That is a long estimate, as I needed
to be very agile in that job. If it helps, I was fine being alone after
returning home 3 days after surgery. Thanks for caring. HAND
