Kidney Transplant: Questions as I prepare for transplant
I have PKD, and will be having living donor simultaneous kidney transplant and bi-lateral nephrectomy 12/7/20, and have some questions.
After the surgery, are transplant patients assigned private rooms? My concern is with COVID-19 restrictions, would patients have to wear a mask all the time in their rooms if they are semi-private? I also have asthma and cannot imagine having to wear one 24 hrs a day.
After release from the hospital, do you have daily blood work?
How often do you actually have appointments at Mayo while staying in Rochester?
How long before you were allowed to drive?
How much time off work (working remotely-desk)?
I know everyone is different, but what was your experience?
