Resources on Kidney Donation and Transplants

Thought I should do a blog without me blathering on and on that JUST has resources. So here ’tis.

 INFORMATION ONLY!!!

CONSULT YOUR MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS, DONOR ADVOCATE AND COORDINATOR.

General Resources

Organ Donation After Death

Polycystic Kidney Disease

Kidney Donor and Recipient Stories

Matching Donors and Recipients

Donor Evaluation 

The Kidney Removal Procedure (Nephrectomy)

Preparing for Surgery and Care After Surgery

FOLLOW WHAT YOUR HOSPITAL SAYS (This is just to give you an idea.)

Support and Psychology

If you have trouble from your employer about time off etc. or trouble from an insurance company when trying to buy coverage in the future, have your donor advocate or coordinator from the hospital talk to them.  Check with your state to see if there are laws that help employees with paid leave for donation or that protect your position while you are off. If you are a federal employee and a donor, there are federal laws that cover you. See if your state offers tax deductions for any uncovered donor expenses.

After Donation

GFR Rate

Paired Donation

Altruistic and Non-Directed Donation/Donor Chains 

The Future

Statistics

**For Michigan residents or check with your local library.
