Lifestyle Changes

You may be able to return to activities that you gave up because of your illness. Many people return to playing sports, gardening, or hiking. Remember, don’t start or resume any activity without getting approval from your transplant doctor first.

After transplant you may need to change your diet. You may need to drink more water. You'll need to get laboratory tests done frequently. If you are a kidney recipient, you won’t go to dialysis anymore. This is a good time to curb cigarette or alcohol use.
