Getting the call for Transplant

Patients normally wait on the transplant list for a deceased donor kidney anywhere from 2-3 years to 6-7 years depending on what part of the country they are in, what issues they have that make it more difficult to find a good donor kidney for them, and how high up on the wait list they are. Some patients may get transplanted sooner, and some may wait longer than 7 years.

Successful Transplant - With Issues

While the hope is that every patient gets their kidney transplant and has smooth sailing after the surgery, it is very common to have new issues develop. Most of these will resolve with time, or be treatable with medications, diet, and exercise. The better a patient understands this, the less frustrated or disappointed they may become.
