Life After A Kidney Transplant
Yes: Absolutely! through proper, frequent follow-up with your doctors, you can live a "normal", full life.

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). The immune system fights foreign invaders (like infections) so it will reject transplants from other people (allotransplants) because they look like infections. So transplants usually require drugs to ...Read more

I am a kidney transplant patient. My creatine has always been between 1.4 - 1.8 is this a normal level?
Not normal: While it isn't a "normal" serum creatinine (or perfect kidney function) that is to be expected. It is very rare that a transplant recipient with a single kidney obtains the same level of function as a healthy person with two normal kidneys. That being said, if you've had your transplant for 5 or more years and no change in function... Then you are doing great. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Fairly risky: Pregnancy is possible for a female kidney transplant recipient whose kidney function is good and stable.

Thank the donor for your second chance at life! be good and good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Other med. problems?: The longevity of a kidney transplant is usually about 10-15 years depending on the source and quality of the donor organ (living donor kidneys tend to last longer). Patient life expectancy generally depends on other medical issues such as heart disease, diabetes, vascular disease or development of cancers. In fact, most recipients will die with a functioning kidney, not because of kidney failure. ...Read more
Kidneys anatomically require connection to an artery for blood supply, a vein for blood drainage and the bladder for urine outflow. In a transplant a healthy kidney is disconnected from its usual attachments and moved to a new location with those 3 requirements (artery, vein, bladder). This may be an auto-txp - somewhere else in your own body; or an allo-txp -from ...Read more
