In brief: Age Matched Activity
A transplanted heart that is working well will replace the functions of the failed heart.
The recipient can do most things that others his/her age can do. There is something called the transplant olympics, and some recipients perform amazing things; you would be quite surprised at the number that have run marathons.

In brief: Medicines
The effects are usually good.
But the adverse effects are usually due ti the immunosuppressive drugs.
