After the surgery is completed, you will be taken to a recovery room for a few hours, where you will be under observation. Once the doctor feels you are in stable condition, you will be shifted to the intensive care unit (ICU), where you are observed closely for several days, and your vitals will be monitored.
Frequently blood samples will be taken to check the new bowel. The doctors will also keep a check that other organs like the lungs, kidney, and circulatory system are all working well. Anti-rejection medicines will be administered and watched closely to be sure that the patients are getting the right dose and mixing the right medicines. You will initially be started on a liquid diet, and gradually you may have a regular diet with no restrictions.
You may have to stay in hospital for 4-6 weeks. When your doctor feels you are stable, you will be shifted to a normal ward. Gradually, you will be able to walk and move around for a long duration. The doctor will then guide you how to take care of yourself when you go home.
An intestinal transplant can improve the quality of life of the patients significantly. However, there are certain measures and practices that you need to follow to live a normal and healthy life.
