You Only Need One: A Living Kidney Donation Experience
In October 2013 I donated one of my kidneys to my sister-in-law, who had been in renal failure since March 2007. I first offered to donate back in 2007 and several times more over the next few years but she wouldn't get me tested as she was afraid of what might happen to my health. After six years of watching her deteriorate I finally persuaded her to get me tested and to my delight we found I was a match. This is the story of the donation process, from the tests, through to the operation and then the recovery with some insight into what living with renal failure is like and how I gave life back to someone very close to my heart.
