Kidney saga takes another grim turn for NY man
Kidney donation saga takes another grim turn for NYC man who lost sister during surgery
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' Two weeks ago, Roberto Medina's sister died while undergoing surgery to give him one of her kidneys. Now, the ailing New York City man is leaving the hospital feeling traumatized ' again.

Medina told reporters he was summoned to Montefiore Medical Center on Wednesday and told that a new kidney had been found to replace the one lost in the botched surgery on his sister, Yolanda.

People normally wait years for a transplant. But Medina said doctors told him he was rushed to the top of a waiting list out of sympathy.



On Friday, he was discharged with bad news: The agency that oversees transplants doesn't allow people to skip to the head of the line unless it is a medical emergency.

Medina said he felt "emotionally drowned."
