What to Expect After Kidney Transplantation :

The life after transplant is a complete change from what you had before transplant. Most kidney transplant patients find they look somewhat different after surgery. They no longer have a pale, dry complexion, dialysis catheters or swelling between dialysis treatments. As early as the day after surgery, their cheeks turn pink and eyes brighten. Rough skin may soften and scars become lighter Some unwelcome changes caused by anti-rejection medications may also occur. These include weight gain, thinning or overgrowth of hair and a variety of skin problems. Your doctor will adjust medications and keep unwanted changes to a minimum while protecting the kidney. A healthy kidney means a better chance for a healthy appearance.
