Mayo Clinic Connect
I am an Anon Kidney Donor, and will offer advise to verify that I made a wonderful decision to donate.

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
