Kidney Transplantation

What is Kidney Transplantation?

Kidney transplantation is a remarkable medical achievement that has saved the lives of millions of people worldwide. It is a surgical procedure where a healthy kidney is transferred from a living or deceased donor to a person whose kidneys are no longer functioning properly, particularly in cases of chronic kidney failure.

Kidney transplantation allows the patient to regain kidney function, eliminate the need for dialysis, and improve their health and quality of life.

Recovery after Kidney Transplantation

Post-Surgery Care
  • You will be closely monitored in the hospital for any complications, such as infection, bleeding, or rejection of the transplanted kidney.
  • You will be discharged from the hospital within a few days.
Medications after Kidney Transplantation
  • You will start taking immunosuppressive medications every day for the rest of your life to prevent rejection of the new kidney, such as calcineurin inhibitors, ant proliferative agents, and corticosteroids.
  • You may also be prescribed antibiotics and antivirals to prevent infection in the early period after the operation.
Follow-Up Care
  • You will continue to receive medical care and monitoring after leaving the hospital.
  • This care includes regular checkups, blood tests, and medication adjustments.
Returning to Work and Activities
  • You should avoid lifting heavy objects or engaging in any strenuous exercise other than walking until the wound heals.
  • You can return to work and normal activities within a few months.

Do you need dialysis after transplantation?

Your new kidney may start working immediately, or it may take several days or weeks. In this case, you will need temporary dialysis until it starts working properly.

How to maintain the transplanted kidney?

1. Follow the medication instructions carefully, including:
  • Using immunosuppressive medications.
  • Avoiding certain painkillers or any other medications, vitamins, or herbal supplements that affect the kidneys.
2. Adhere to medical advice and follow-up appointments, including:
  • Following a healthy diet.
  • Practicing simple exercises.
  • Avoiding sports that require physical contact.
