In brief: Highly variable.....
Everyone recovers at their own pace - it depends on age, reason for the transplant, and other medical conditions you may have.
It can take 6 weeks to 6 months. What is very important is that you go to cardiac rehabilitation after your transplant. If you haven't been referred, ask your cardiologist or primary doctor to get you in. The cardiac rehab staff will get you on the road to recovery.
