Social Life After Kidney Transplantation

Kidney transplant patients use high doses of drugs that suppress the immune system for a while after they are discharged. For this reason, they are open to infections in the first trimester, and it is useful to have some restriction in their social life during this period. Patients can socialize with family members, exercise, eat with family members, and walk outdoors. However, they cannot enter crowded environments such as mosques, weddings, funerals or public transportation.

It is recommended that they wear a mask in every area during the first three months when they are outside the home, and if there is a flu disease among family members at home, the sick person should also wear a mask. These patients, who have regular check-ups at the hospital, can return to business life after about three months if there is no patient-specific health problem.
