While you were ill, family members and friends may have managed many things for you or helped you with your care. After your transplant, you may be able to handle more of these issues on your own. As you change and feel better, everyone will have to adapt their thoughts and behaviors to a new you.
Before your transplant, sexual activity may have been out of the question. Now that you feel better, you may be ready to reconsider. Talk to your transplant team before resuming sexual activity. Open communication will be important to maintaining good relationships.
