Man Believes His Skin Is Getting Darker Because Of A Recent Transplant

Semen Gendler had fallen incredibly ill, and doctors determined the only way he would be able to survive was if he had a liver transplant. As the Mirror reports, he was fortunate enough to receive that transplant, but he’s reporting some unusual side effects.

Gendler, whose primary residence is in Russia, was faced with the double whammy of hepatitis C and cancer. A transplant was deemed necessary, but he had some choices to make.

“Russian doctors made it quite clear to me that if I didn't have a liver transplant I would not live. I do a lot of business in the US with partners in New York, and I asked them to help me arrange for the operation where if you have enough money it is possible to do it more quickly than in Russia,” he explains.

A trip to the US was deemed to be the best choice for an expedited transplant, and he was fortunate enough to find a quick match and have successful surgery. However, he reports that the pigment of his skin has gotten much darker since the operation. Turns out that the donor was an African-American man, but Gendler knows exactly how fortunate he is.

“I could end up much darker than this to be honest, I don't care. The main thing is that the liver works and I am healthy,” he says.
