Thu, Jan 16 9:58pm · From a Living Donor: One year later, what is your life like now? in Transplants

Thank you! I’m not sure how my recipient is doing. I met her briefly about a week after surgery, and heard that she ended up staying in the hospital quite a bit longer. I hope, too, that she is doing well now. The surgeon sounded hopeful the last time we exchanged messages.

My 67 year-old recipient has diabetes, as well as some other health issues, and was cleared for the transplant. Her recovery has been somewhat complicated due to multiple health issues, but diabetes didn't prevent her transplant. I hope everything works out well for your grandmother!

Sep 1, 2019 · Any double donors out there: liver and kidney? in Transplants

Thanks for the welcome, Ginger! I had a student many years ago who ultimately needed both a liver & kidney transplant. I was friends with her mom and witnessed the years of struggle that they faced. Happily, she had successful transplants and is now pursuing a career in nursing, currently working at the hospital she was treated at as a child. I know that living organ donation is not for everyone, but I feel so strongly that it is the right thing for me to do, so I strive to be informed and learn as much as I possibly can about making this a reality.
