Is it normal to get a hematoma on your transplanted kidney after being transplanted?

Is it normal to get a hematoma on your transplanted kidney after being transplanted?

No.: A hematoma is a blood clot, that occurs after bleeding in the tissues. It can form in any surgical wound, including a kidney transplant. It can occur after kidney biopsies.

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

My child received a transplanted kidney.  Will their be complication if they get chickenpox?

Infection risk: Almost every transplant of any organ must be treated with medication to prevent the immune system from rejecting the organ. These medications make it harder for the immune system to do its other jobs too. That includes fighting infection. Your child should see a doctor anytime you suspect he/she is sick because of possible complications. ...Read more

How long will a hematoma from a kidney biopsy take to resolve? Two weeks and still in some pain.

How long will a hematoma from a kidney biopsy take to resolve?  Two weeks and still in some pain.

Kidney Biopsy: I've seen this kind of pain last up to 6 weeks but that was in someone who had some really bad bleeding afterwards. I would say the normal amount of time to have some pain is 2 weeks. What is critical is this - is the pain slowly resolving? If so, you are recovering. The actual blood that has been lost will reabsorb over about a 2-3 weeks. ...Read more

When kidney s not working 50%, is it tat v should transplant kidney or change d whole body blood?

Kidneys at 50%: At a functioning level of 50%, one does not need a kidney transplant or to go on dialysis. Go to a nephrologist to find out what your glomerular filtration rate is by having a 24 hour urine collection done. Renal patients do not start dialysis until they lose 90% of their kidney function. If you treat the condition(s) that caused your kidney disease effectively, you may not lose any more function. ...Read more

Can my uncle who's in his 30's succeed the operation of a transplant kidney? He has CFR and his creatine is 8. Should he be on dialysis, or operation?

Must be evaluated: Most patients in their 30's will qualify for a kidney transplant. However, they must be good surgical candidates, must accept the risks of transplant (the anti-rejection medications have important side effects), and must be good caretakers of the new organ (keep medical appointments, take their medications on time, etc). If these criteria are satisfied, transplant is a better option than dialysis. ...Read more
