6 Benefits to Finding a Living Kidney Donor
You can significantly reduce your wait time. After all the donor testing is complete and your donor has been approved by the transplant team, your surgery can be scheduled.
You increase the chances that your transplanted kidney will last longer than one received from a deceased donor. On average, a kidney from a living donor lasts 15-20 years versus a kidney from a deceased donor which averages 8-12 years.
You might be able to avoid or shorten the amount of time you are on dialysis. You are more likely to have better outcomes with your new kidney if you are transplanted before starting or after a short time on dialysis.
You can schedule the transplant surgery at a time that is convenient for both you and the donor, allowing you and your family to prepare for major surgery.
You are more likely to receive a kidney that is a better genetic match, which may decrease the risk of organ rejection.
You are more likely to receive a kidney that will start working immediately upon transplantation. Deceased donor kidneys can be “sleepy” and take some time to “wake up” and start functioning.
The numbers say it all
You don’t need to wait… you can take action now by finding a living kidney donor.
