How will I feel after my transplant?

You will probably feel much better after your operation. However, it’s important to give your body plenty of time to recover. 

Most recipients need at least 4–6 weeks to recover after a kidney transplant.

If there are problems after the surgery, the recovery time will be longer.

The first 3 months after your transplant are very important because this is when your body is most likely to reject your new kidney.

Always do what your kidney specialist tells you. Make sure you go to all your appointments and take your medicine as you are meant to.

Taking good care of yourself after your transplant is really important to keep your new kidney healthy and working well.
