I'm really sorry to hear about your friend's daughter.

Transplantation is a very difficult subject from lot of angles - social/financial and medical. There is severe shortage of organs being available for those who need transplantation. In case of live transplantation, there is still lot of social limitation and I've seen only very close relatives coming forward for it. So, only option available is cadeveric transplant.

In your scenario, it will be advisable to register with 1-2 other leading kidney transplant hospitals in nearby cities and wait for a matched cadevaric kidney being available. Again, due to shortage of cadeveric kidneys, there is a very long waiting list for recepients and each institute have their own policy in this matter.

In the meantime, she would need to be continued on CAPD plus other renal medications along with control of fluid intake.
