Posted on November 23, 2012Fistula was not successfully made so the plan is to have a permcath on another site days before nephrectomy. Meanwhile, tissue typing, CMV, EBV and PRA testing has been done. Potential donor also underwent tissue typing and crossmatching.
Thank you to Anonymous donation, by the way.
