Guidelines for managing health after the surgery
- It is vital to keep up with your doctor appointments, undertake the necessary lab tests, and keep a tab on your pulse, blood pressure, weight, and cholesterol.
- It is advisable to take immunosuppressive drugs (lower the body's normal immune response). They help to avert the immune system from attacking (rejecting) the new organ. This is because organ rejection is an invariable threat and needs extreme caution.
- Avoid unhealthy habits such as smoking and excessive drinking. Have a nutritious diet that consists of raw fruits and vegetables, drink plenty of water, cut down on salt and include high-protein foods such as lean meat, chicken, fish, eggs, etc.
- Take ample rest and exercise regularly, but take it slow. Start with walking and then steadily increase the workout intensity with cycling, jogging, swimming, etc.
- You may face instances when you see there is hair growth or hair loss, acne, mood swings, round face, dry mouth, ulcers, enlarged gums, etc. In times like these consult your doctor and they will accordingly adjust your prescriptions to curtail the side effects without adding risk of organ rejection.
