In brief: Rejection

Your immune system sees any transplant as a foreign object.
It treats the cells of the transplant just like bacteria cells it works to destroy them. This would cause the transplant to be destroyed or rejected. The immunosuppression runs down the volume of the immune system so it cannot kill off the transplant so easily.
