The key to keeping your transplanted organ healthy is to take your medications properly!
Generally, the first three months after your transplant are the busiest when it comes to your medication schedule. You might feel overwhelmed at first, but your transplant team is there to help you. Please call them with any questions you have - there is no such thing as a silly question!
Your transplant team’s goal is to make sure you are comfortable with all your medications before you leave the hospital. The transplant pharmacist and nurses will teach you and your parent(s) or guardian(s) about your medications and give you a schedule to use.
Your parent(s) or guardian(s) will be involved so that they can be your back-up. At first, they may take a bigger role in giving your medications and following the schedule, but over time your transplant team wants you to become responsible for organizing and taking your medications!
