Because of the initial loss of blood supply, when the kidney was harvested, it is common for Tx kidneys to be a tad "sleepy," as both of my Txs were. Fear not, this may not affect the function or quality of this Tx, when it does "wake up" fully.
There is no timetable for recovery. In my case the first Tx took three months, the second Tx, only 3 days, so look forward to recovery and try to stay calm as the Tx ream resolves the issues, if any.

I got my transplant about 14 years ago. Now my weight more than 13 kg above normal range of my height and age. I want to lose weight. Can any body guide about diet and type of workout.
Need help. So i had my transplant about 4 years ago and so far everything is fine. However just yesterday i started feeling numbness and paint on my left hand. My AV fistula is placed in that arm about elbow height. Anyways i wanted to know does this mean my fistula has failed? There i no reason i should get an infection as i have never used it before i got it put on and got the call for a transplant before it was able to mature. Anyone had these issues with their fistula? I can no longer hear nor feel the buzzing/thrill and i kind of feel like a bit of a swollen vein that i am able to move up and down. Please Help a bit scared..
Its called steel syndrome, don't know if I spelled it right, very common with a fistula. I've had four different grafts and am on my fourth kidney transplant and still get it, probably is due to damage to the nerves when they put them in.
Numbness is due to interrupted blood supply in the hand. I had suffered the same and therefore I got it operated and finished the fistula. After this strength of arm and hand has improved.
