Resuming life after transplant
- Quality of life: Most patients are able to lead a comfortable and healthy life. After transplant they return to work, and enjoy an excellent quality of life
- Work /sports: A majority of people can return to their normal daily activities, 2-3 months after surgery. Children can resume schooling after 3 months. Playing sports and exercising frequently is possible after 3 months although it is advisable to avoid contact sports such as boxing, karate, rock climbing etc. for 6 months. It may take longer for patients who are very sick before the transplant. Initial family support is very crucial to lead an active and productive life in the long term.
