    Help a loved one recovering from a kidney transplant

    A transplant is major surgery that requires a long recovery process that will have some difficult elements to deal with. If you have a loved one who has just had a kidney transplant then it is helpful for you to be there for them as much as you can, and support them through this time so that they can recover as quickly and fully as they possibly can. Here are some tips for helping someone to recover from a kidney transplant.

    • Make sure they take their medication. If you can be with them when they are discharged from hospital then you can ask their doctor directly how the medication should be taken, when and in which order. This will give you the information you need to ensure that the patient takes everything they need to to aid their recovery.
    • Feed them well. During recovery, the patient will probably struggle to do simple tasks, so one of the best things you can do is to make sure that they are eating well by cooking them plenty of healthy meals, portioning them out and then leaving them in the freezer to be reheated.
    • Take them to doctors appointments. Make sure that your loved one never misses a doctors appointment, as this is how the doctor will be able to tell that the transplant has taken as it should, and that the patient is on the road to recovery.
    • Look out for a fever. A fever is one of the first signs that the patient may be suffering from complications with their surgery, or that their body may be trying to reject their kidney. Get them to a doctor as quickly as possible if their temperature goes up.
