Emotionally, what can donors expect?

This differs from person to person. Some people will feel very happy they were able to help someone who was in need of a life-saving organ. Other people might feel slightly depressed even though they helped someone in an incredible way. Still others will feel completely the same afterwards. The important point is that all of these emotions are completely normal feelings after donation. Everyone is unique in how they respond. But almost everyone does report an overall positive response and experience.
