Once you are released to return to your local area, you will need to schedule a visit with your Primary Care Physician (PCP). The transplant team works closely with your PCP to manage your care on an ongoing basis. You will also have periodic visits with your transplant hepatologist and your labs will be monitored indefinitely by the transplant team to look for rejection or other transplant complications.
It is important to follow up with your primary care physician to receive appropriate screening for cancer since anti-rejection medications may increase your risk of cancer development.
All medications must be taken exactly as prescribed by your transplant physician.
Never stop or change any medication without first discussing it with your transplant hepatologist or nurse coordinator.
If your liver fails as a result of rejection from not taking your medications, you will not be offered another transplant.
