What are you interested in? The entire transplant process from deceased donor, to the patient/family stress of waiting for a transplant, to the surgery and recovery? Or the just the entire surgical procedure? Compressed down to a watchable length.

Have you watched other bloody surgeries? Are you sure you want to watch this? If your transplant date is near you may have some of these imagines in your mind that will increase your anxiety when you are preparing for your surgery.

Take care.

Thank you for those websites....watched all plus more 3 nights in a row...upside down sleeper you know...found them very interesting.  Not knowing for me is anxiety.  Like I messaged you I use to sit in the surgery gallery and watch surgeries. It helped me out in the field a time or two as EMT in very bad sector of town...we actually had to wear kavlar vests and wait on swat team before we could exit bus (ambulance) to do our job. As I watched these films though I was thinking I may not have too good a chance to even get a liver...it's a real roll of the dice isn't it.  Hope things are going better for you right now and you go up that list.
