Possibly: With appropriate treatment this is possible, the higher risk of rejection and medication side effect must be balanced against the risk of missing a chance at transplant. It might not come again for a while. Review with your transplant team.

Breaking Rules OK: In some instances, it is permissible to break the ABO rules. A2 blood group donors, express less group a antigens, and may be considered as possible donors to otherwise ABO non-compatible recipients. The experience of your transplant center with this modality is key. Please discuss further with them.
