Post operative care for heart transplantation
Heart transplant which is a surgical transplant procedure performed on patients with end-stage heart failure. Recovery period varies among different may vary from 1 or 2 weeks to 3 months in some individuals. Heart biopsy is a standard test which shows whether your body is rejecting the new heart. This test is often done in the weeks after a transplant. Cardiac rehab is medically suggested programme for people who have heart problems. It includes counseling, education, exercise, training which helps in recovery. Generally body will regard your new heart as a foreign object. Patient should take medicine to prevent immune system from attacking the heart. Shortness of breath, Fever, Fatigue (tiredness),Weight gain (retaining fluid in the body), Reduced amounts of urine (problems in the kidneys can cause this sign) are some of the symptoms of rejection. Checking the temperature, blood pressure, and pulse is essential. Certain Immunosuppressants are suggested which helps in suppressing the immune system thereby helps in controlling the rejection of new heart by the body. Some times Doctors may need to change or adjust transplant medicines if they aren't working well or if they are showing any side effects. After a heart transplant patient may feel fear, anxiety, depression and stress. Family and friends also can help relieve stress and anxiety. Stats show that between 85% and 90% of transplant patients survive for at least a year after the transplant; 75% are alive after five years; and between 50% and 60% are alive after ten years.
