Wink Newly Transplanted

Hi everybody,

My husband received a cadaver kidney transplant on new years day. Since then it has been very frustrating and basically a roller coaster. His creatinine has been fluctuating up and down. His neph said he wants to see it at 1.5 or less. The lowest so far was on Monday and it was 1.76 and then today it went back up to 1.97. Last Thursday it was 2.15. The neph said he's not concerned but we are. What did your final creatinine stabilize at and how long did it take to stabilize? Thanks for any input.

Tara

Re: Newly Transplanted

Especially at the beginning, things change a lot. Make sure to stay hydrated and take your pills at regular intervals. You might require some changes of meds to take some of the pressure off the kidney (prograf is hard on kidneys) but things will probably settle down. Right after transplant I was at about 1.5 and the last several years my baseline has been about 1.75. I am now 9 years post surgery and hopefully will have many years to come.

Best of luck.

Re: Newly Transplanted

Everyone reacts different after a kidney transplant. I am a little late replying but hopefully everything is good with husband by now, but if anything hopes this makes you a little more at ease. My creatinine was always like that as well after my transplant, it even went up to 2.0 once. My creatinine is now and has been for a long time 1.7 and it has never been lower than that and I've had my transplant for 9 years now
