Two years ago today I recieved my new liver and kidney. They seem to be working OK, I just have some minor problems to deal with, mostly side effects from the meds I’m required to take now.
When it happened, I got the liver and kidney from the same donor- a man who had a stroke and was brain-dead, just older than me. I was told that the other kidney and possibly other organs were used in other transplants.
I was wondering what the pros and cons of seeking out my ‘kidney brother’ would be, if it was even a good idea. i wouldn’t mind comparing notes with them on the post-op care and recovery, and how they were doing overall. Does anyone want to weigh in on this? Should I seek them out, and if so, how would I best go about it?
