What NOT to do or say at the Transplant Evaluation...

Don't tell them you're buying a kidney from Craigslist.

Don't excuse yourself for a cigarette break.

Ask "Do you know if BEK transplant is still in operation?   Their web site has been down for a few years, but it looked like a viable option with fresh kidneys from Chinese prisoners".

What not to ask:

I know "buying" a kidney is illegal but could I just trade something for one?   :angel;   :rofl;

Do not bring 76/35 BP into the last appointment with the transplant coordinators. 
Freaks them out.

"Can I get post transplant support here if I buy a kidney in India, China or the Philippines?"
That is something that I have wondered about but have been afraid to ask in case someone thinks I really mean to do it. Over here post transplant drugs are provided free for life (of the kidney) along with any treatment needed. I have often wondered if someone came back to England with a kidney they got illegally, would the government still pay for the meds? ( My guess is "Yes, but for a while you would be taking them in jail.")

Whoever said "God does not make mistakes" has obviously never seen the complete bog up he made of my kidneys!
