Kidney transplantation part 43

Kidney 13


What are the risks to living kidney donors?

Emotional risks

Most living kidney donors say they feel very satisfied with the donation experience. Even if the transplant is not successful, many donors say they feel positive about their decision.

There is a small chance for living kidney donors to experience mixed feelings after the donation. These feelings may be more likely if the transplant surgery has not gone as well as expected.

It is also common for living kidney donors to experience depression and anxiety after surgery. This is normal, and happens after many different type of surgery. Your donor’s health care team can suggest ways of helping to manage this

    A living donor is also an option for my daughter with her auto-immune liver disease (non alcoholic related). She was diagnosed 6 years ago, and she’s OK, but sometime in the future, she’ll need a liver transplant. I just read that this blog is for your son in Heaven, and I’m so sorry for your loss. Even though I don’t know your story, I understand in a small way because of my daughter’s experiences. It’s scary and daunting, not knowing what the future holds for her and her family. And I can’t tell you how many times we plead to trade places with her. But she’s 27 now and living her life with a few symptom flare-ups now and then. It’s a slow-progressing disease. Anyway, I wanted to also thank you for visiting my blog many times. Sending comforting, virtual hugs, Lauren
