Hello....... Before organ transplantation HLA typing should get matched.. Otherwise it won't accept... Most of the times family members organ will not be accepted.. And you are his son ,chances are less.... Ask your doctor once... It takes very long time for recovery, she will be put on immunosupressants after transplantation..
