Bladder Problems And Kidney Transplant
Usually recovers: Patients that have a normal bladder at the time of kidney transplant should have a resumption of normal bladder function.

However, many recipients have abnormal bladders, which may need rehabilitation either before or after the kidney transplant. ...Read more
In medicine: a transfer from one body or body part to another of an organ (liver, heart, lung, kidney, pancreas bowel) or tissue (hand, face, hair).
