You have been given a lot of information to think about and discuss with your healthcare provider.
Your first step in the liver donation process is having several exams as part of your medical evaluation. The evaluation may discover certain health problems that you didn't know you had. While knowing this can be good for your future health, it may increase the costs of your health or life insurance or make it harder to get insurance in the future.
If you qualify to donate part of your liver, and choose to do so, it's important to know that the donor surgery does have risks. These risks will be discussed in more detail before the actual procedure.
We hope that the information we have presented today has been helpful. Be sure to talk to your healthcare provider about any questions or concerns you have about the medical evaluation or surgery. By knowing what will happen to you, including the risks and possible benefits, you can make the best decision about whether or not you want to continue.
