Pediatric kidney transplantation part 14

Children

 

Those doctors will make sure your child’s other organs are working well and that your child can safely undergo anesthesia for the transplant operation. Some centers will also have your child be seen by an infectious disease specialist.

The “palliative care team” is another important team that is often included. This team helps you make decisions that are best for your child and your family.

In addition to determining your child’s medical eligibility for transplant it is also the responsibility of the transplant team to assess ability to adhere to a complex treatment regimen. This can be particularly hard for teenage transplant patients and is frequently one of the most difficult challenge after transplant. Non adherence with medications and a  sometimes demanding visit and lab schedule after transplant can threaten the health and well-being of the transplant and the patient. The transplant team will likely take any concerns in this area very seriously and work with you to offer ways to increase the likelihood of success after transplant

    I understand what you went through and since it was for a child it must have been even harder. I had a liver transplant and it was very difficult for a long time because of infections and other damage my bad liver did. I haven’t read your posts yet, but I will. I wish your son the best of health and continued courage for you.
