Hi, just wanted to ask anyone who knows what protocol is involved when a close friend with a compatible blood group offers to give a portion of their healthy liver to me. The person lives in the USA and has been a friend for a very long time. I imagine I need to talk to my hepatologist first but wondered how UK doctors feel about foreign donors, whether they are acceptable as a non UK resident. Not sure at the moment if I need a transplant but things aren't great. Any opinions welcome. Liver very cirrotic, spleen huge as is liver. Partial donations is an unknown area for me plus the person who is the selfless giver.
