In brief: Catch 22 answer

With successful transplantation and a robust recipient, there should not be any left over disability.
The patient should be capable of working within approximately 2-3 months. But many diabetics who need these transplants have serious visual and foot problems that cause permanent disabilities. When possible, the point of transplant is full return to all of life. The judgement is made individually.
