Kidney transplantation part 30

Kidney 13

 

Transplant rejection

You must take anti-rejection medications for as long as your transplanted kidney is working. These medications partially block the activity of your body’s immune system. This prevents your body from attacking  your transplanted kidney.

There are many different medications which are used to prevent rejections. For each of your medications find out:

  • When and how to take them
  • What to do if you miss a doses
  • Possible dietary restrictions
  • Interactions with other medications
  • What side effects you may experience
  • How to store your medications

In the early period after your transplant, you may have some rejection episodes. These may only be picked up by your regular blood tests. These episodes can usually be managed with changes to your medications.

Some rejection episodes may require extra treatments such as plasma exchange (to remove antibodies in your blood) or special infusion.
