Resuming Daily Activities

Now that you have 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 life's 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
