AAs a liver donor, it's important for you to have a good support network. If you haven't done so already, be sure to put together a good support team of friends and family members. Other people, such as neighbors or friends from your work or church group, can also be a big help.
Also talk to your healthcare providers about possible resources to help you after your surgery. Most transplant centers have social workers or professional support teams who work specifically with organ donors and their families. They can suggest places to find more information about transplant surgery. They can also let you know about any other helpful resources, such as organ donor support groups or newsletters.
Finally, you can also look for information at your local library or on the Internet. There are several Web sites that talk about organ transplantation and recovery, including a site made specifically for living organ donors. This site can be found at www.livingdonorsonline.org.
Surrounding yourself with supportive people and good information can be very helpful as you recover from liver donation surgery.
