Does anyone know about finding matches for kidney donation?

First my living donor was a blood match but a positive crossmatch. Which is not what we wanted. My anitbody level was too high. 2 years later I find out about IVIG, an antibody reducing iv treatment. Then I was told they were going to retest my living donor due to my antibodies are lower than two years ago. Now, the transplant team are telling that once your antibodies are too high for the donor they are always too high. Why even mention it if they already knew it was going to work.
