What can I do to help my kid’s Pediatric Kidney transplant?

If your child’s kidneys are near failure or have failed, you might have to talk to their nephrologists regarding the kidney transplant option. The doctor will tell if the transplant is the only viable option left or not. Once this is discussed, you can move on to the following steps:

  • Selecting the location of the surgery.
  • Medical evaluation to confirm if the transplant is safe for the kid or not.
  • Create a list of all the queries you have regarding the transplant.

Who will be a member of the transplant team?

The transplant procedure for a child is almost similar to that of an adult. However, the members of the transplant team are trained in dealing with the needs of the children with kidney disorders. To know more about kidney transplant in Hyderabad, contact us at 18002122. The team will include the following:

Pediatric Transplant surgeons - Perform the surgical procedure of kidney transplant on the children

Pediatric Nephrologists - Treat kids with kidney diseases and failure

Nurses - They provide patient care to your child before and after the surgery. They also plan an important role in your child’s recovery after the transplant.

Social workers - They work on connecting the parents of the child to the resources required for addressing the needs of the patient before, during, and after the surgery.

Dietitians - They make special meal plans for your children so that they say healthy prior and after the procedure.

Child psychologist - These are the health providers who work with children to help them deal with the emotional changes accompanied by the transplant procedure.

Pediatrician - Although not part of the transplant team, your child’s pediatrician must be aware of your child’s status.

What are the different ways to get a donated kidney for my child?

There are two ways to get a donated kidney to your child. A pediatric kidney doctor can provide you with more details. Here are a couple of them:

Living donor - This is a living, healthy person who donated one of their kidneys to the patient. After the donation, they can resume their normal life with just one kidney. Almost 50% of all transplants are from living donors. Usually, these are parents, siblings, or any family members. They also are the best donors because of a tissue match and the same blood type.

Deceased donor - You can get a kidney for your child from a healthy person who just died. There is a national waiting list for a deceased donor transplant. However, this could take months or even years.

What are some things that I should know about my kid’s transplant surgery?


Any child more than 2 years old can get a kidney transplant from an adult. The only requirement is that the kidney should fit into their bodies.
In most cases, the kidney is placed in the stomach’s lower right side.
In the case of small children, the new kidney will be placed in the center of the stomach.
The old kidneys of the child are not removed.
The donor’s ureter will be attached to the child’s bladder.
The surgery can be as long as 4 hours.

How is the recovery process in the hospital after the kidney transplant?

Here is how the recovery process is carried out in the hospital after your child’s kidney transplant:

  • For at least one week after the transplant, the hospital will be providing care to your child.
  • During this period, the kid might have to take some blood tests for checking up on the new kidneys. Also, for helping with pain, certain medications can be prescribed.
  • Your child will need help walking from the nurse. They will also have to perform deep breathing exercises for healing.
  • In some cases, a child might have to go for dialysis shortly after the transplant. This does not mean that the kidney is not working. It just means that it will take some time to start working. This mostly happens in the case of a deceased donor.
  • Before the child leaves, the doctor will talk with you regarding the steps to take for keeping the new kidney healthy.

How can I help my child adjust at home after the kidney transplant?

Here are the steps you need to follow to take care of your child after the transplant:

  • Limit physical activities until the area is healed.
  • Do not participate in rough play or sports until the doctor says it is okay.
  • The surgery spot should be kept dry and clear for preventing infection.
  • Do not let any sick people come near your child.
  • Ask your doctor if it is okay to let the kid play with pets.

What are some medicines for keeping the new kidney healthy?

As long as your child has a new kidney, they might have to take immunosuppressants or anti-rejection medicines. The immune system of your body provides protection from harmful cells and germs. When the new kidney is transplanted, the body might not be able to recognize the donated kidney cells right away. It might think of it as a germ or a disease and attack it. To prevent this, immunosuppressants are taken for slowing down the immune system.

What will happen if the child’s body rejects the new kidney?

There are a few warning signs of the body rejecting the new kidney. If you see any of the following signs in your child after the transplant, call the doctor immediately. If you are in Hyderabad, you can search for Kidney transplant hospitals in Hyderabad to know more about the treatments.

Fever
Fast heartbeat
Little to no urination
Sudden weight gain
Tenderness or pain at the surgery wound
Swelling
Symptoms of flu-like nausea, chills, body pain, and headaches
