Nov 27, 2019 · Living Donor Process in Transplants

I went to the gym a lot and walked on the treadmill. Exercise seems to help me when I'm anxious about something.

Nov 26, 2019 · Living Donor Process in Transplants

I was a living donor for my father. I had to convince him to allow me to be tested since he had some reservations about it. He was concerned about my well-being. The staff at Mayo were great in helping me and my father work through his concerns. After I filled out the mail in history it did feel like forever to hear back. (I am also impatient) after I was approved past the first round. They set up a time for me to come down to Jacksonville to get a very detailed workup. It was a few days of testing and blood work. That was run very efficiently. I again had to wait to hear. So there is a lot of waiting while the check and double check everything but it is well worth it. For the best outcome for everyone involved. It has been 6 years now and it is most certainly the best choice I have every made to be a living donor. The waiting is hard but well worth it to be done right!!! Best wishes to you and your sister
