Feeling Better
Having a healthy, functioning kidney makes a big difference in how you feel. Soon you will feel well enough to do many things that you may have been too sick to do before. In fact, many kidney transplant recipients notice right away that they have more energy, even though they are still recovering from major surgery.

Although you will probably feel a lot better, you should remember that there are still things you need to be concerned about: rejection, and the possibility of other complications. Once you are home from the hospital, you’ll be taking more responsibility for watching out for these things.
