In brief: No more dialysis

This is a very general question.
If the new kidney is functioning well most recipients are able to return to pre-illness levels of activity. Many adults return to full time work and school. They no longer do dialysis, but must take a number of new drugs that prevent rejection. They need to continue lifelong follow-uup by their transplant team.
