Will a transplant cause any complications?


A number of postoperative complications are possible, including:

  • Infections
  • High blood pressure
  • Rejection
  • Diabetes

There is no way to predict accurately which patient living with ADPKD will have problems. The transplant team will do their best to reduce the likelihood of complications and to treat them promptly if they occur. Following instructions carefully and keeping the transplant team informed of any difficulties will help you return quickly to a normal, active life.
