A man (who cannot be named for legal reasons) who bravely went through surgery to donate a kidney to his father has been awarded £6.7 million in compensation. The man’s life expectancy has been shorted by 10 years as a result of the botched surgery.

The man has suffered health problems and had to suffer through dialysis. He has already had to have a kidney transplant from his sister and it is believed that his condition will deteriorate in the future. The requirement to have a further kidney transplant is thought to be inevitable.

The family’s barrister said “The donation of the kidney was successfully achieved but at a great cost to the claimant who, during the course of the operation, suffered torrential, life-threatening haemorrhaging.”

The surgery resulted in a two month stay in hospital and he received 100 units of blood and fluid transfusions.

The surgeon who carried out the operation faces proceedings before the General Medical Council.

The judge ruled that the Claimant should have never been advised to go through with the operation. He also said that due to the exceptional circumstances the Claimant should not be identified as doing so could have a devastating effect on the family.
