Pediatric kidney transplantation part 24

Children

 

Tips for talking to your child about their transplant surgery:

  • Tell your child what their incision (opening for surgery) or scar will look like
  • Draw a picture of an incision on a doll or on their abdomen
  • Tell your child that they will have some pain but that  they can ask for medicine to make it better. A child often is anxious about surgery because of their fear of pain
  • Tell them that the doctors and nurses are on their side and helping to make them better
  • Check that your child understands what will happen. For instance, ask them to explain in their own words what they think will happen or what could happen
