Kidney transplant

Recommended Posts

So I’m scheduled to have a kidney transplant Oct 17 I ride a lot of technical difficult single track. Just wondering from those who have already gone down this path, how long should I expect to be off the bike? Thanks

I work with a gentleman that donated a kidney to his sister around 3-4yts ago. If I remember correctly, he was off work for 3 or 4 weeks and told to take it easy for at least 6 weeks. His sister though I believe was 2 to 3 months. She had to be monitored closely to make sure there were no problems. I would expect 3 months off the bike if I had to guess. Maybe more. Talk to your doctor.

Good luck. Wife had her left kidney removed (cancer tumour). Operation July 21/18. Walking right away, back at work 4 weeks later. Walking 3-4 Miles 5 weeks later. So far all is good. Good luck.

So here’s the update... no transplant yet. My cousin and I are not ABO blood type matches but we are tissue matches on 3 out of 4 markers. IF I end up with her kidney despite the search for a better match. It will come with known complications
