New Delhi: A woman who donated one of her kidneys to her sick husband is demanding it back after he dumped her shortly after the operation.


Samantha Lamb saved her hubby Andy's life after she gave up one of her kidney to him, but once he got better he ended their marriage.

Now the furious mum-of-one wants her donated kidney returned so that she can give it someone more deserving.

Andy Lamb was suffering from renal failure and was only being kept alive by dialysis sessions, until his wife Samantha persuaded him to take one of her kidneys.

Lamb, 41, lost more than 3st in weight to make sure that she would be healthy enough for the transplant operation in October 2009.

The couple were even filmed for a BBC show which documented the story of her gift of love. But they did not live happily ever after.

Just a few years after the life-saving procedure, their marriage was over when Lamb walked out on his wife in August 2012.

Lamb is adamant that her husband started having an affair with her friend — a claim he categorically denies.

He moved his belongings out of their marital home one evening while she was working a night shift at Tesco.

He also took the TV and stereo before posting the keys through the letterbox without a note or letter, she claims.

The couple, from Ivybridge, Devon, met when they were both drivers for a private ambulance firm and started dating in 2004.

After a brief split, when they had to live apart from each other for a short period of time, they decided to get married in 2007.

However Lamb's condition meant he soon became dependent on gruelling dialysis sessions.

Lamb says she now regrets donating the kidney to her husband and wishes she could have it back — if only to donate it to someone more deserving.
