Can you use marijuana to treat post kidney transplants with ongoing nausea?

Absolutely Not

Cannabis
Marijuana is not safe in post transplant patients as it may interact with many of the anti rejection medications and alter their levels. Consuming Marijuana will also disqualify you from getting another transplant in the future if this one fails.

If you get a pancreas transplant, is it true that you must also have a kidney transplant?

Panc tx alone

Hypoglycemia
The majority of recipients get a kidney either simultaneously or before a pancreas transplant, but there is a group that get just a pancreas. Usually for very brittle, potentially life threatening DM1, almost always with hypoglycemia unawareness and frequent EMT or ER visits. Also well described following total pancreatecomy for non-malignant disease

What can I expect with kidney and pancreas transplant?

Feeling healthy

Pancreas
When a kidney + pancreas transplant is successful (roughly 4 our 5 cases) the diabetic patient becomes free from needing insulin or having to check blood sugar. If dialysis was needed pre-txp, that also becomes unnecessary. Overall, the person feels rejuvenated and healthy again. But risks must be considered too. They include surgical complications, rejection, and the need for immunosuppression

Are there any doctors that have information on light exercises that I can perform after four months of having a kidney/pancreas transplant ?

Just Start Slowly

Pancreas
By 4 months, you should be able to do just about anything you want but start slowly. Light weight training and aerobic exercise will make you feel better and help you transition back to a more normal lifestyle.

How long could disability last for a kidney/pancreas transplant patient?

Catch 22 answer

Transplant
With successful transplantation and a robust recipient, there should not be any left over disability. The patient should be capable of working within approximately 2-3 months. But many diabetics who need these transplants have serious visual and foot problems that cause permanent disabilities. When possible, the point of transplant is full return to all of life. The judgement is made individually.

What does a low wbc count mean for a kidney and pancreas transplant patient?

Low WBC

Transplant
Low WBC after transplantation is very common as a consequence of the various immunosuppressive agents (particularly mycophenolate mofetil and azathioprine) and antiviral medicines (such as gancyclovir and acyclovir) which are myelosuppressive. Low WBC, particularly low neutrophil count, can be very dangerous, so consult with your transplant specialist.

What are are the advantages and disadvantages of having a pancreas transplant for people with diabetes?

Pancreas transplant

Open-uri20130228-1644-1x04czd
Type 1 diabetics do not make insulin, but if they get a transplant, the new Pancreas would make insulin and the sugars would be normal. It is like having a biologic insulin pump that works perfectly. It is not a cure, but it is currently the most effective treatment available. The downside: it involves a big operation, lifelong immunosuppresion and is only offered to select individuals.
