Minor problems that can happen with liver donation include but are not limited to:
• Nausea and vomiting for several days after the surgery
• Pain at the incision site
• Allergic reactions
• Minor bleeding at the incision
• Abnormal scar formation
• Temporary jaundice, which is a yellow color to the skin and eyes
• And delay in the return of intestinal function - which happens in about 1 out of 10 cases.
In most cases, minor problems don't last more than a week or so, and your health care providers can usually take care of them.
