Pediatric kidney transplantation part 26



Fears and concerns about surgery and recovery

It is normal to be overwhelmed by the scale of transplantation and its effect on your life, your family, and your future. Some people become very emotional for a time and you may experience many confusing or overwhelming feelings. This is normal.


Maintaining routine during hospital stays

The hospital stay can be very upsetting for children. Their daily routine and sleep pattern change. They will also face strange and sometimes  painful tests and meet many new people. It is normal for them to be irritable and bad-tempered after this experience, especially if their stay in the hospital has been a long one.

The experience can be particularly hard for younger children, who especially benefit from a regular routine. Try to keep to familiar routines as much as possible during your child’s treatment. Bed time routines are especially important for good sleep. Be sure to bring your child’s favorite  blanket or toy that they use to fall asleep.

When your child leaves hospital after surgery, it may take some time for things to get back to “normal”. If you have questions or concerns, the members of the transplant team are there to help.

    My heart is with you. My son was diagnosed at age four. They said that less than ten percent outgrow it. We were, indeed, fortunate. He is now an adult. No doubt he is shorter than his older brothers but he is well.
