Can I get a tattoo after kidney transplant?

Can I get a tattoo after kidney transplant?

Why risk it?: I don't see why not, with the exception of potentially contracting an infection from improper technique/cleaning of instruments; and while being on immunosuppressive agents not something you want to have happen. Double check with your doctors/transplant docs to be sure...But why risk it? Why not try a 'fake' tattoo; same eye appeal without the risk. ...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).

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

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

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

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
