A 24-year-old member asked:
how long should i expect to take anti-rejection medications after my kidney transplant?

Dr. Gregory Hale answered
Specializes in Nephrology and Dialysis
Lifetime medication: You will need to take anti-rejection medications for life, or at least the life of the transplant. The dosages will be reduced some from the initial dosage but you will need meds to prevent rejection. The risk of rejection never goes away.
