Hospitalization and Recovery After Liver Transplantation

There are many new things a person experiences after liver transplantation. Before you leave the hospital, your team will provide all the instructions you and your family will need in caring for the "new" you. Three months after the operation, most patients have recovered fully, returned to work, and are enjoying active lives. Our goal is to provide expert care and excellent follow-up, working with your primary care physician, to make the extent and quality of your life appreciably better than before. We urge you and your local doctor to keep in touch with the CLDT to let us partner in your ongoing care.
