Resuming Daily Activities

After your transplant, you should resume your previous activities. You may even feel good enough to add a few new ones. Walking is the best exercise the first six weeks after your transplant. Other guidelines to follow as you return to enjoying daily activities:

  • Avoid lifting heavy objects and performing intense work until you get your doctor's approval.
  • Avoid activities that put pressure on your stomach area and incision.
  • Avoid contact sports.
  • Avoid driving a car until you get the approval of the transplant team.
