Living with a Liver Transplant
After transplant, non-complicated surgical patients can expect to heal in the hospital for about seven to 10 days. You will learn about your new medications and the importance of healthy diet and exercise. When ready, you will be discharged to return home.
Our transplant team will follow you weekly in our UF Health clinics for the first month. You will initially require lab draws every Monday and Thursday for three months after transplant. You will then transition to a monthly routine. Much of this will be drawn through your local lab.
At UF Health Shands Transplant Center, we have a close working relationship with our patients and think of them as part of our family. We feel very privileged to provide them the opportunity to help them lengthen and enhance the quality of their quality lives so they can pursue their life goals.
