Returning to work or school

After your heart transplant, your goals are:

  • better health
  • positive attitude
  • involvement in activities

For example, many people find that their jobs are important ways to describe their self-worth. This may include taking care of their children, doing housework, volunteering, going to school, working at a job, or doing a hobby. Your activity choices will help restore your body and mind.

Your transplant team can help you return to your former activities, including work or school.
