As per my understanding you are looking for the renal transplant. Renal transplant should not be an issue. But it is a major procedure therefore patient’s overall health, associated comorbidities, patient’s age, weighing benefits over risk are factors to be considered. You need to get listed for donor's list. There is an entire protocol to match with donor. Patient’s fitness will be decided by nephrologist and his team. Also lifestyle changes, emotional support, counselling of patient and family to deal with the disease will improve the quality of life .Please consult a nephrologist. Hope our answer helps you.

Hello, The cost of kidney transplant ranges between Rs. 5,00,000 to Rs. 6,00,000 in a private hospital. In a government hospital, the cost might be a little less. Talking about the post-treatment, the monthly costs comes around Rs. 15,000 per month. Note- The cost varies depending upon hospital to hospital, the criticality of the case and other factors too. Hope our answer helps you.

Transplant it is a super major surgery. Any kind of transplant has its complications, and graft rejection is one of them. There are many other complications associated with the transplant therefore transplant needs a multidisciplinary approach and a team of experts to deal with such patients.

 

Consultant transplant specialist he will be in a better position to guide you accordingly, because everything depends on patients age, his condition associated comorbidities, the match of the graft and many other factors. Consult a transplant specialist for guidance. Hope our answer helps you.

Hi dear, I am from Nepal, 60 years male and am under hemodialysis since 2 years back. For the first year I was more centralized in myself and much concerned how much hemodialysis was safe. I met people under dialysis for 8 years to even 12 years. I even met few people come back a year or two after successful kidney transplant. Then , I used to think this is OK, my life expectancy was not more than 18 years then. But this winter I witnessed 4 critical deaths at my dialysis centre, which left me more unsafe and worried. Now I also am infected with HCV+ at this moment. I am a diabetic patient since 2001, Three years back I had a minor hemorrhage There is only one centre in my place where i can dialyze. So in a way I am handicapped, can not travel. Now something came up my mind, if I could find a volunteer Donner in India, the hospital fee is actually affordable. Considering all my health condition is it possible for me to perform transplant. If you see it possible please advise. Thank you. Regards. Nero
