The The University of Vermont Medical Center transplantation staff works to assist transplant recipients as they resume their lives and activities. While transplantation does much to improve the patient's life, the transplant recipient has an ongoing responsibility to sustain the benefits of the surgery for the rest of their life. Transplant patients are active participants in preserving and maintaining their own health.
The transplant patient begins a new life after surgery.
The following are the discharge instructions that will be reviewed with you prior to leaving the hospital. Weekdays, call the Transplant Surgery office at 802-847-4774 with any questions.
A balanced diet and regular exercise are important factors in living a healthy lifestyle. After transplant you will be able to enjoy a wide variety of foods with very little restrictions.
Rejection is a normal response by the body to fight off the transplanted organ because the recipient's body sees it as a foreign object. Loss of the transplanted organ can usually be avoided if rejection is recognized and treated quickly.
