Hello all I am 44 days away from a live donor transplant kidney transplant. I am wondering if there is anything that I should do it to prepare my environment for the strength. My husband will be home with me for as long as necessary after the transplant so I don't need as much help in that respect oh, I'm more concerned with what types of things should I do with my bedroom, where I'll be recovering. Also my husband and I will be on a 9-hour flight two weeks prior to the transplant. And then a 9-hour flight back home. Would it be silly for me to wear a mask on the flights to avoid the flu oh, I've been lucky so far. And what about when I come back to work? I work as a parish administrator any busy and large Catholic Church. I talk to people all day long who come in to visit the priest do paperwork, all sorts of things. So I have a lot of public contact. Would it be reasonable or helpful for me to have a large bottle of hand sanitizer right outside of the window and ask people to use that before handing me anything? Or am I just being ridiculous? My dad had a transplant and 1984 and lived until 1993. The 10 years between the transplant and his death were filled with chronic rejection weird fungal infections and other sicknesses. I know that that was a long time ago, but I want to stay as healthy as I possibly can and I'm open to any suggestions to help me stay as healthy pre and post transplant. Thank you!
