hi. my uncle is in need of a liver transplant.. i match his blood type, and im willing to donate, but I had a blood transfusion last january and im wondering if someone who has had a blood transfusion can donate their organs and such? i know that i might be rejected anyhow because i am very anemic and im overweight, but id like to try.

First of all, thank you for considering to be a donor. That is a wonderful thing. You need to talk to your Uncle's transplant center. I don't think a blood transfusion will eliminate you as a candidate, but the weight issue and anemia might. See what the donor coordinator has to say. Maybe with some intervention, you may become a suitable donor. Best of luck.
