Your transplant coordinator will give you instructions for your follow-up appointments. In general, your appointments are as follows.
Time after transplant
Number of visits
Your nephrologist will adjust your follow-up schedule depending on your health and recovery.
Please keep any appointment, no matter how you feel. If your body is rejecting the kidney, the first signs may show up in the lab results. By the time you "feel sick," the rejection may have caused the kidney to fail.
