In brief: Be compliant

Transplant surgery is just a beginning of this long journey.
You need to comply with your anti-rejection meds and post-transplant clinic follow-up. Live smart (i.e. practice good hygiene, get flu vaccine, have good blood pressure and blood sugar control, exercise, maintain stable weight, etc). Your transplant MDs and nurses will help you achieve your goal.
