My dad is a 56 years chronic kidney failure patient with blood grp O+ve and is now on dialysis. We are looking for kidney transplant but don't have same group donor from our family. Should we wait for a cadaverist or go for an incompatible transplant.

I can appreciate your concern. Since you don't have same blood group donor in your family, you can resort to various options namely Paired donor exchange/swap donor/ABO incompatible/cadaver transplant/unrelated same blood group donor.
