KUANTAN, Malaysia - Chen Ze Rong, a doctor-to-be who is currently on housemanship donated 67 per cent of his liver to save his primary school teacher.

The 25-year-old graduate of a medical school was a student of Kong Min Chinese primary school in Kuantan. He was taught by science teacher Liang Feng Pin.

Liang's only daughter, Zheng Zi Jing, was also Chen's classmate in primary five.

After hearing Liang was facing liver problems and needed to undergo a liver transplant, Chen volunteered to be a donor.

The transplant was completed in Singapore. Both Chen and Liang are currently recuperating in hospital.

A post by Nanyang Siang Pau Medical Foundation on Facebook said Chen's jaundice reading was slightly high but his condition would improve once the liver starts to grow.

"Chen is breathing on his own without relying on oxygen. He can sit on the bed but is in some pain. He should be able to be discharged from hospital in a week's time."

Blood test results also showed that Chen's liver is functioning in Liang's body.

"This means no rejection after transplant. Liang currently is undergoing dialysis treatment until her condition is stabilised."

If Liang's condition is stable, she can be discharged one month later. The first six months is the most critical period for her.

Zheng said the mother is currently relying on a breathing machine but doctors said her condition is good after the transplant.
