MORE TIPS ON STAYING HEALTHY

Avoid infections:

  • Limit contact with people with colds or viruses (especially small children)
  • Wash your hands well
  • Treat scratches
  • Keep your vaccinations up to date

Reduce your risk of skin cancer:

  • Follow the slip, slop, slap, seek, slide advice (slip on a shirt, slop on sunscreen, slap on a heat, seek shade and slide on sunglassess)
  • Have regular checks for other cancers such as breast cancer (women)  and prostate cancer (men)

Be a non-smoker:

  • Having a transplant increases your risk of having health problems caused by smoking
  • This include lung cancer, stroke and heart attack
  • Your chances of a long-term, successful transplant may be reduced if you smoke

Let your health care team know if you get sick:

  • If your illness is treated quickly your risk of damaging your transplant is reduced.
