How long is the surgery?

Some things are better left unknown but you can read all about it on the Live Donor Info page.  The surgery takes 5-8 hours, with hospitalization of about 1-2 weeks, and out of work anywhere from 6 weeks to 3 months.  It all depends on the individual.  And one recommendation given:  “Do not shave your abdomen or chest before surgery; this will be done immediately before the operation”.  Happy trails to you, until it grows back again.
