How long should we wait?
My sister is O+, 48 years old, 5'8 and now 270 lbs (water weight from kidney failure), usually runs about 220 lbs. Alcohol abuse has shut down her liver, which in turn has shut down her kidneys. She is on the list for a transplant in Mt. Sinai, her MELD is currently 34. I know there is no way to say how long she will wait, have been sort of led to believe between 2-3 weeks, my question is how long do we wait before we consider heading to Ohio or NC or FLA, where her MELD will rank much higher on the list? Docs can't or won't answer this question, and obviously they can't say " if she doesn't get a liver by XX date, then move her", so I'm hoping for some insight here. Thanks
