When a suitable donor liver becomes available to you, the transplant needs to take place as quickly as possible. You can help the process by:
- Ensuring that your coordinator always has your current contact information, especially your cell phone number, and is aware of any travel plans.
- Making sure that reliable transportation to the hospital is available 24/7.
- Packing a bag of clothing in advance so it’ll be ready to take with you.
- Keeping all your medications, your medical records, and your insurance information in one place so everything can be packed quickly for your trip to the hospital.
