Living with your new kidney
You should be able to return to normal activities and work within three to six months of your transplant. You will need to allow time for your wound to heal and for your stomatch muscles to get strong again. Regular exercise is an important part of staying healthy. It is recommended that you start with gentle exercise first.
It is recommended that you do not drive a car until six weeks after your transplant. You should also avoid any heavy lifting for six weeks.
You will need to manage your medications carefully. It is important that you take your medications exactly as prescribed by your doctor.
It is important your kidney has enough fluid to work properly. You need to make sure you drink enough water or fluids to stop you feeling thirsty, and to keep your urine a pale yellow colour.
