Tue, Mar 10 4:47pm · Living Donor Kidney surgery next Tuesday: Any advice? in Transplants

I was a living donor on February 11. I have complete trust and faith in the Mayo staff. They will not do anything that will endanger you or the recipient. You can take that to the bank. Since my surgery I have been using common sense to protect my health. I'm getting plenty of rest. God has blessed me with the ability to help someone else in a very meaningful way. I think the donation has helped me just as much as the recipient.

I donated this past Tuesday, Feb 11. I am home recuperating. I don’t know who received my kidney. I’m happy to hear that my donated kidney is working well. I am experiencing almost no pain. Tired. The transplant team was amazing. I have absolutely no regrets. There is no history of kidney disease in my extended family. That gave me confidence that no relative was likely to need my kidney. I like the idea that I’m helping someone live a better life.

Good idea. I had not thought about that. I have a daughter who lives locally who I can ask to come help.

I live in Jacksonville. I am 68 and a widower. My sister is coming to stay with me for a week. I'm looking forward to seeing her.
