POST TRANSPLANT CARE

 

Post Liver Transplant

The duration of hospitalization post-liver transplant ranges between 7-10 days for most patients. The post-discharge, recuperation period of around 90 days is most crucial, as this is when majority of the healing takes place, during which time any failure to comply with the Immuno-Suppression medical regimen can cause post-transplant organ failure. We ensure close follow-up with the transplant team and primary care physician to achieve the best possible outcome. The patient’s quality of life is significantly improved with adherence to medication schedules, adapting to lifestyle changes and implementing infection-prevention techniques.

Post Kidney transplant

The duration of hospitalization post-kidney transplant can be up to 7 days after surgery. During the initial recovery period adequate care is essential and medicines must be taken on schedule. The new kidney may start functioning immediately or it may take up to a few weeks before it takes over normal kidney function and starts clearing waste from the body. Nursing care can make a huge difference to the patient during this transition phase.

Our skilled nurses will monitor all vitals and warning signs like pain or swelling, all at the patient’s home. Follow-up visits will be scheduled for the first one to two months until complete recovery or as advised by the primary physician or the Clinical team at KEFI Home Healthcare.
