What symptoms should you watch for after a kidney transplant?
For the long term, your team will monitor your progress with regular laboratory work. Your doctors will likely ask you to manage and keep track of your blood pressure and weight.
Watch for any signs of swelling that might signal problems with your transplant. Also pay close attention to early signs of infection, including fever, chills, cough, abnormal pains and diarrhea, and discomfort in the kidney area or while urinating.
