I am in my early 40s and recently started dialysis (PD). Been trying to get potential donors and my parents volunteered to be evaluated as donors. My parents are 70 years old. It turns out my dad got through all the tests and have been approved as a “backup donor”. We are not direct match and would need to go through exchange program. In addition, my rejection rate is quite high (93%).
Given my dad’s age, I don’t think he should donate and participate in the exchange program. Is it better for me to keep on dialysis and wait for deceased donor?
