From my understanding (had a boss with a swapped kidney), you might not be stuck where you are.
If you want to move, pick a city with a transplant center because a portion of the transplant criteria is based on geographic location to the patient. I’m in the southeast, and we have three, and because it’s a large city, well let’s just say there’s a lot more livers available here. If you’re on the UNOS list, you’re in a national pool, so where you are shouldn’t matter.
