Live Donor Weight Loss Prior to Transplant
I am hoping to be considered a kidney and liver donor for my sister, but my BMI is currently 40. I’m losing weight now, and also planning bariatric surgery (gastric sleeve) in January (motivated by my own health) but am curious to know if this would pull me out of consideration to be a donor? My sister is just beginning the process with her transplant team, so there are no surgery dates planned at this time. Anyone else have experience with this or know about these considerations? Thanks!
