Kidney 13


What are the risks to living kidney donors?

Physical risks

Being a living kidney donor means having major surgery. This always carries a risk of serious complications including death.

Complications that may occur during surgery include:

  • punctured lung (pneumothorax)
  • Lung infections (pnemonia)
  • Nerve damage
  • Blood clots (thromboembolism)
  • Bowel perforation
  • Bleeding

The transplant surgeon will talk to your living kidney donor about these risks in detail.
