Liver transplant

I am the one considering India for a transplant as I cannot afford it here.  Why living donors as they will not have a genetic match.  I was told it would be a cadaver donor.  If from a live donor how will I react even though they are same blood type.

there are no specific advantages of live donation over deceased donor liver ntransplantation.  although the complications may be different, the overall rate is the same.  the only significant advantage of a live donor is if it was from an identical twin, which would obviate the need for immunosuppression
