Hard to say.: Immunosuppression medications are necessary to prevent the body from attacking the transplanted kidney. If the medications are stopped, the body begins to attack (reject) the organ and the kidney will eventually fail. Once this happens, dialysis will need to be started. Many factors affect the rate at which the body attacks the kidney, making an exact answer to your question difficult.
