Hi, I just joined Mayo Connect yesterday. I also just completed my initial paperwork to donate my kidney to my best friend. She is waiting to be contacted and I suspect they will then contact me. I have had the entire workup at Sharp Hosp. in San Diego and all was a go until they decided that, for them (change in chief of Staff), she was a risk. I have a large list of questions that I asked Sharp and will also ask Mayo when the time comes. I don't know if we are permitted to exchange emails on here but I would be more than willing to share my list of questions (and the answers I received from Sharp). It may help you make a decision. My friend is also my roommate so I see her struggles on a daily basis….that alone was enough for me to decide to donate but asking questions put the icing on the cake. I wish you well and can hopefully share my list.
