Yes, ...: Getting a second kidney transplant is an option after failing to "permanently" retaining the first one. However, the contributing factors to decide if she is suitable for a second one should be scrutinized harder than before in terms of her general mental / physical health, other medical co- morbidity, her coping will. So, work closely with the doc to assess the balance between needs & possibility
