Kidney transplantation part 11

Kidney 13

 

Staying healthy while waiting for a kidney transplant

To give  your transplant the best chance of success, it is important that you look after your self while you are on the transplant waiting list.

You will also need to provide routine tissue typing and antibody blood tests every one to two months. This allows current samples to be used in the cross match tests. Small amounts of these samples are sent in case a donor matches with you. If you do not do these blood tests, the laboratory will not be able to assess your compatibility with a donor and you may miss an opportunity. You will also have regular reviews where you can discuss any concerns about your transplant preparation.
