Needs good care: Typically, a man will have normal fertility after kidney transplant. Graft life expectancy depends on proper care and medical compliance (taking all your meds) and varies somewhat by center but may be ~8 to 12 years for a cadaveric donor or ~12 to 20 years for a living donor. Actual life expectancy can of course be longer. When the kidney fails, you will need dialysis or re-transplantation.
Dr. Amitabh Gautam
Transplant Surgery 42 years experience
Yes: Successful kidney transplantation usually restores the production of sperms which may be arrested by kidney failure. There are some reports that sirolimus used as one of the drug to prevent rejection can impair male fertility.

Will the hepatitis b vaccine raise my child's risk of sids?

Dr. Michael Pappas
Pediatrics 23 years experience
No: That is not true. In fact, since the institution of the hep b vaccination, the incidence of sids has actually decreased. In the early 90's, there was a concern because sids occurs in the first few months of life, and the first hep b shots are given in the first couple of months as well. So, the assumption was that they were related, but that is simply not the case.
