8 Months out Kidney Transplant here. I had a followup Ultrasound Monday and the Kidney is doing great. Unfortunately they found a small (3.2cm) Incisional Hernia.
Bummer but things happen. I'm surprised since I waited until the 12th week Post to start back up on my Cross Fit Weight Training so not sure if that contributed.
Questions: Has anyone been thru a Post Kidney Transplant Hernia Repair? I want to know about any experiences you had.
I'm guessing its safe to dive back into the area of the Kidney? A little worried about that since the Hernia is directly over the are where they placed the Kidney.
Any thoughts or experiences welcome. I have a consultation with the Surgeon on May 19th and hopefully surgery at the end of June.
I'm sure it will be laproscopy and mesh so confident things will come out ok. Is there any risk to the Kidney?
