Too Big for Transplant Even after Prison Release

I found this article on CNN about the two women released from prison to allow for a kidney transplant. It seems that one sister's size is playing a major factor in their freedom as she must drop 100 pounds in order for her to donate a kidney to her sister. Her doctors won't even begin the testing for the kidney's compatibility to her sister until she has experienced some substantial weight loss. Here is the link. I wonder how this will impact the conditions of their release from prison. Also note that her doctors are considering Lap Banding for the donor as a way to loose the weight relatively quickly
