Post-Pancreas Transplant Procedure
After the surgery is completed, patients are taken to a recovery room for few hours, where they will be under observation. Once your doctor feels you are in stable condition, you will be shifted to the intensive care unit (ICU), where you will be observed closely, and your vitals will be monitored. The doctors will also check that other organs like the liver, lungs, and circulatory system are all working. Anti-rejection medicines will be administered and closely watched to ensure that the patients get the right dose and mix the right medication. When the doctor feels you are stable, you will be shifted to a normal ward. Gradually, the patient will be able to move and walk around for a long duration. The doctor will then teach you how to take care of yourself when you go home.
