The case is genuine and needy. Please forward this to anyone you think who could help.
As discussed over telephone the other day please find the details required for the liver donor .
About Patient :
Prema Malla, Female,Age: 55 yrs,Blood Group: B +ve, is suffering from Primary biliary cirrhosis often abbreviated PBC, it is an autoimmune disease of the liver marked by the slow progressive destruction of the small bile ducts. When these ducts are damaged, bile builds up in the liver (cholestasis) and over time damages the tissue. This has led to scarring, fibrosis and cirrhosis.Liver biopsy shows an advanced fibrosis stage (6/6).
Living Donor Liver Transplant(LDLT) is urgently required from a living donor who can donate half of his/her liver. Donor please contact Sandeep Thakur (+919899333866).
The donor operation is entirely safe (To be done in Medicity Medanta by Dr Arvinder Singh Sion) and the half liver quickly regenerates in both the donor and the recipient in a few weeks. In the first few days after operation even when regeneration is not complete, the half liver is enough to maintain normal donor functions due to the immense reserve in the liver.
The person must donate of his/her own free will
The person should be between 18-55 years and weigh >50kg
The donor and recipient blood group must match (B +ve)
The donor liver structure / function, as well as the other systems must be normal
Half of the donor liver must be enough in volume for the recipient
The suitability in the above respects and some other technical points is determined by the Transplant Team in Pre-transplant donor evaluation which normally takes 2-3 days.
Facts about liver donation surgery:
Modern liver cutting techniques using CUSA have made it safe and blood less
Normal liver has immense reserve - nearly 70% of liver can be safely removed although much less is removed
Normal liver grows back very quickly - it can be restored to normal size after removal of half the liver in just 2 weeks
After operation, the donor will stay in hospital for 5-10 days. Another 3-4 weeks of recuperation is required at home. After that, the donor can resume normal activity (except strenuous physical exercise) and return to work 6 weeks after surgery. Sexual activity can be resumed as soon as the donor feels well enough. Heavy physical activity, sports including lifting weights can be resumed 3 months after surgery.
There are no dietary or any other restrictions, and the donor leads a completely normal life with normal liver function without any decrease in the longevity of life or any other long-term consequences.
Among more than 7000 donor operations worldwide, 6 deaths have been reported which gives an expected mortality of around 0.1 %.
