Can I get a tattoo after kidney transplant?

Can I get a tattoo after kidney transplant?

Yes-at a parlor: As long as the tattoo is done at a reputable tattoo parlor with sterile equipment, you should be ok. I advise patients to wait until their steroids are stopped or reduced to a low level as this may affect the cosmetic outcome. It's always a good idea to discuss this with your doctor before proceeding. ...Read more

Transplant (Definition)

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

Got a tattoo had a kidney transplant 4 years ago was it okay to get one?

Got a tattoo had a kidney transplant 4 years ago was it okay to get one?

Get which?: Tattoo or transplant?
Since both are in past tense, it's probably a bit late to ask the question?
Now, assuming you're on immunosuppressant(s) for the transplant, the only risk for tattoo is getting an infection like hepatitis C which your body may not handle as well.
If you're asking if it's ok to have gotten kidney transplant - I presume it was urgently needed given the type of procedure it is ...Read more

I got a kidney transplant 18 months ago, so i want to make a tattoo on my arm is it harmful?

Great idea: I'm a fan and have two of my own. Just be sure that your tattoo represents something of the greatest importance to you. Being a transplant recipient is a wonderful gift and if your tattoo reflects your new life, your gratitude to the donor and the family and your medical team, and you've chosen the design you want and are steady with it, then by all means do it. ...Read more

What to do if I have o negative blood can I still get a kidney transplant?

What to do if I have o negative blood can I still get a kidney transplant?

Certainly: Unfortunately donor pool will be much smaller than if you were rh +ve.Any chance there is relative with o-ve blood type who might donate. Another option can be arranged via some organ banks, whereby a potential donor with non matching blood type or tissue match can be matched to third party who also has a non-matching donor, but their donor matches you & your donor matches them. ...Read more

My arm has grew so large from my acess but I know have a kidney transplant should I get it litigation my f?

Enlarged access arm: If you have an enlarged vascular access arm, as seen in the image, you have a venous stenosis (S) causing it. See either a vascular surgeon or an interventional radiologist to do an angiogram of the access and the central veins of your body. If there is a S, an angioplasty or stenting of the S should reduce the swelling. Good luck. ...Read more

Fairly risky: Pregnancy is possible for a female kidney transplant recipient whose kidney function is good and stable. Yet, it is still considered a high risk pregnancy for both the mother and the fetus. Although you may be capable of conceiving now, it would be unwise to do so until your function stablizes at a good level for at least 6 - 12 months. ...Read more

How do I get a kidney transplant?

How do I get a kidney transplant?

Need a Tx Center: You need to be evaluated by the transplant team at an approved transplant center. They will go over the process and describe what is required to be wait listed for a kidney. One early suggestion, avoid any blood transfusions until you are evaluated. If you become sensitized from an elective blood transfusion, you may wait years or never receive a kidney. ...Read more

Is there anyone who cannot get a kidney transplant?

Is there anyone who cannot get a kidney transplant?

Unreliable patients: For every kidney txp performed, either a live donor's life was put on the line (for the operation), or another pt on the waiting list will die because the organ was given to this pt. So, it is only fair to perform txps for pts who are expected to survive at least several yrs and will actively care for themselves. Too sick, or out of condition, or uncaring, or unreliable pts must be told no. ...Read more

How can a foreigner get a non-related kidney transplant done in the us, or canada?

Unlikely: Many logistical issues make it difficulty. Unless you have a health insurance in the U.S., the cost of transplant surgery will be prohibitively high and most tx programs will not accept you. For deceased donor kidney transplants, one has to wait just like U.S. nationals (ave. 5 yrs) and they need to be able to get to the transplant center in ...Read more

I always think im gonna go ill or get illl it just scares only felt like this since i had my kidney transplant in 2001?

Don't : The point of a transplant is to life life. You had your transplant in 2001 and I am presuming you have not been ill. This is 14 yrs! Risk of infection goes down. Just be sensible in what you do, go about life and enjoy your life. Even if you get an illness most can be dealt with, so enjoy and take your meds. Happy that your kidney is 14 yrs old and am sure you can get many more out of it !! ...Read more

Can a 76 year old man get a kidney transplant? Is it safe?

Yes if very active: Transplant teams consider how old a person seems medically, not the # of years of their age. A 76 year old who cannot walk 1 block is probably not in good enough condition to survive and thrive from a transplant for long enough to justify the use of that kidney. But, a 76 year old who is quite active and does not have other major medical problems, may have the best chance for long life with a txp. ...Read more

Kidney Transplant (Definition)

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

Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure. Through hormonal signals, the kidneys control the ...Read more
