Must Know Facts For Transplant Recipients

  • A transplant is a precious gift, which will give you a new lease of life.
  • Under no circumstance should you stop your ANTI-REJECTION TABLETS (CYCLOSPORIN / PREDNISOLONE AND AZATHIOPRINE) or any other combination of drugs.
  • If drug cost is a major factor, discuss this with your Kidney specialist. He may be able to help you by changing the drugs or altering its dose.
  • You are more prone to infections – Don’t take episodes of fever lightly, immediately report this to your Kidney Specialist.
  • You can lead as normal life as your next-door neighbor without the need for fluid or dietary restrictions.
  • Your best friend is your KIDNEY SPECIALIST and you should always consult him for any problems without the slightest hesitation.
