Match compatibility markers (HLA, antigens, etc)
I am a kidney transplant patient. At my latest appointment with my local nephrologist, he asked me if I had any details regarding the quality of match (with my donor) that I received. I am going to be celebrating my 2 year transplant anniversary in July. I have not had any conversations like that with my transplant team. Have you?
My local nephrologist said that my transplant hospital definitely has that information. It sounds like antibodies, antigens, etc that are cross matched after matching blood type is confirmed.
Have you had any "match compatibility" conversations with your transplant team or have you received any post-transplant testing that gave you additional information regarding the quality of your match?
