How to Donate a Kidney – What Are the Things You Need to Do to Give Extended Life to Someone Else

By Eric

When I was still going to in-center hemodialysis, I got the chance to meet some great people who shared the struggle of being in that clinic day after day, hour after hour, in order to sustain our lives. One of the best people I met there was a guy named Bob.

 

I bring up Bob because he was fortunate enough to receive his kidney transplant from his living sister. And with her being his living donor it got me thinking that other people may want to know more about how to donate a kidney.

 

 

In this article I’d like to look into some of the things that someone considering giving the gift of prolonged life to someone should prepare themselves for as they move forward in the process.

 

 

 

Who Will Pay for The Tests and Procedure Itself – It’s sad to think about but the first thing that you must consider when learning how to become a kidney donor is to think about the financial part of all that is to be done. It involves testing to see if you are a good physical match for the recipient.

 

Now, I wasn’t privy to the information of how Bob financially took care of the donation from his sister, but I am aware that in a lot of instances, the recipient’s insurance company would cover the costs associated with testing and the surgery itself. And the only thing that a donor would be responsible for would be their travel expenses and follow-up care.

 

A chat with the financial counselor or social worker at the chosen transplant facility about the specifics of how this would work would garner better information before you decided if you could indeed move forward.

 

 

 

Testing, Testing, 1…2…3 – Much like what a kidney transplant recipient has to endure, becoming a kidney donor means being put through a series of physical tests to determine how fit you are to be a donor. You’ll go through immunological and laboratory tests to see what your blood says about your body. Then, you’ll have an EKG along with some other physical tests to see if you can physically handle the stresses of the surgery itself.

 

As you move forward, answering the question ‘how can I become a kidney donor’ get to be more like ‘why do you want to be a kidney donor’ when you are assessed on your motivation for being so willing to give up a part of yourself to someone else. And of course the tests will include determining if the donor kidney is healthy enough to be donated in the first place.

 

Also, keeping with the theme of having a full physical exam done before being given the go-ahead on anything else, female donors will have to have a gynecological exam done as well.

 

 

In Conclusion – Learning how to donate a kidney will not and cannot be learned in its entirety be reading a 500 word article. It will take some real soul-searching and a lot more research to figure out if it is indeed the route you want to go. Be sure to find more information be exploring the resources of some of our page partners on this site.

 

 

Just a Reminder – Whether you are donating one of your kidneys to someone you know or not, the financial and physical parts of the equation are always in play. Of course, your story, reasoning, and ability to handle what is involved is your own. Only you can determine that and I wish you the best as you continue your quest to becoming a kidney donor.
