More than 90% of transplanted kidneys from deceased donors remain working after one year. The success rate often improves with a kidney from a living donor.
Kidney Transplant in India
In India – it is easy to spot kidney donors and get the transplant done. Thus you avoid long waiting time in your home country. Before the surgery, extensive tissue typing would be done. Electrocardiogram (ECG, EKG), chest x-ray, psychological testing and counseling would be done prior to the procedure.
Description of the Procedure
The doctor will cut into the lower abdomen. The donated kidney will be connected to your arteries, veins, and ureter (tube that carries the urine to the bladder). In most cases, the diseased kidneys will be left in place. The doctor will then close the incision. The new kidney may start producing urine right away or within a short time.
Immediately After Procedure you will have a catheter left in your bladder. This catheter will be connected to a bag to collect urine. Surgery takes 3-6 hours for completion. The usual length of stay is 1-2 weeks in hospital.
Complications are rare. They are even rare when the surgeon is experienced and skilled. Heal and Wheel has tied up with only the best surgeons and thus complications are very rare. However a few complications like some infection, rejection of the new kidney, blood clot, urinary obstruction for some time may occur. Some factors that may increase the risk of complications are pre-existing medical conditions, especially certain heart, lung, and liver diseases, poorly matching tissue between you and the donor, pregnancy and cancer.
Heal Wheel India’s role in your surgical trip …
While you are recovering at the hospital there would be a team of specialists to take care of your post treatment revival. You would be asked to breathe deeply and cough 10-20 times every hour—This will help your lungs work better after surgery. You would also be asked to take immunosuppressive drugs (for the rest of your life). These drugs reduce the chance that your body will reject the new kidney. You would be given steroid medicines to decrease inflammation in the new kidney, diuretic medicines to help rid your body of built up fluid. You will be weighed daily and the amount of fluids you take in and the amount of urine you pass would be measured.
