Liver Donation


New Member
This is all still WAAAAY out in the future but I am reading up on stuff as much as possible.

A friend of mine from HS has been diagnosed with liver cancer and is need of a transplant. I am O negative so my ability to donate is "good". What resistance from the FAA might I encounter if I match and am compatible and I donate part of my liver?
They are not resistant. As soon as your are recovered from the surgery and the surgeon releases you, it is OK to go back to flying. Just report it on the next medical.

Good luck to you and your friend. I've got a good friend who had a transplant about a year and a half ago and is doing great. :)
