A 43-year-old mother who had a second liver transplant on Thursday has regained consciousness and is said to be recovering well. 

The director of the Liver Transplant Centre at Queen Mary Hospital, Professor Lo Chung-mau, said on Friday that Tang Kwai-sze is now able to nod and move her fingers. 

Tang’s case case gained public attention after her 17-year-old daughter was rejected as a donor because she’s underage.

Tang underwent a first transplant last week after a 26-year-old woman donated part of her liver. But that didn’t succeed and she had to undergo another liver transplant from a deceased donor.
