Where to go for living donor transplant? candidate issue
My mom recently been suffering with liver problems and and went into cardiac arrest and now she's in rehab but haven't woken up yet. She has been waking up looking around lately and show signs of improvement, but prior to this she had fluid built up which caused her admission into the hospital. The doctor told us she had beginning cirrhosis, but come back for a check up in 3 years. At the hospital they said she is not a candidate for a transplant,my family and I are all ready to be a living donors, so we are considering a living donor transplant for her but we are looking for hospitals and clinics. We are just doing a search, but if anyone has info or suggestions please help us my mother is a registered nurse as well for well over 40 years and she would usually be our database, but now she needs help and we looking for some answers. We would consider going anywhere for treatment. Thank you
unfortunately your Mom will need to get in much better shape before she would be a suitable candidate for any type of transplant. i sincerely hope that she gets better and wakes up--I presume that this is a result of the cardiac arrest and not of severe hepatic encephalopathy
