Apr 19, 2017 · The Need for Living Kidney Donors in Transplant

I don’t know if requirements and procedures are the same for Rochester and Jacksonville,however, I was tested as a living kidney donor here in Jacksonville and all testing was positive with the exception that my kidney had multiple arteries which would make transplant problematic for the recipient. If this were to change, I would still be agreeable to go forward with the donation.

I did complete the testing to become a kidney donor and all the blood and scan tests were positive. However, when the committee that makes final approval met the decision was to not approve me. The reason given to me was that my kidney had several arteries which would make the transplant problematical for a recipient. As for the testing, I had no problems with any of them and consider that I received a complete physical examination with good results.Carroll Sharp

This is an anonymous donation. I have seen the need and feel that if I am accepted it will be a good thing for someone.

Today, Dec 12, I begin the process to determine if I will be an acceptable living kidney donor. With successful results this week, one less person will be on the transplant list.
