Routinely check for and report to your nephrology team  (surgeon, doctor or nurse) any of the following:

  • A change in colour, temperature or sensation (numbness or tingling) and pain in the hand  of your graft arm (or foot of your graft leg)
  • An increase in swelling, pain or redness on your arm (or graft leg) and the presence of any fluid leaking from your incision
  • Fevers, chill or loss of thrill
  • Bleeding that occurs from your graft when you are not in the dialysis unit
  • Needle sites that are not healing
  • Your surgeon or nephrology team member will give you other important instructions
