Can You Have a Kidney Transplant More than Once?

There is no ambiguity in the fact that kidney transplantation is quite a difficult process. The complexity of the surgery cannot be overlooked but also the preventive measures that have to be followed even during and after the treatment has been proven successful, make it a global threat. Additionally, finding a matched kidney donor is another facet that makes the process of kidney transplantation a difficult procedure to perform.

Considering all these factors which are associated with the transplantation process, it is obvious for the patients to be worried about the second kidney transplantation in case the first one did not go well. If you ask us about the possibility, then the answer is yes. Yes, you can undergo second transplantation and even a third and fourth until you have attempted five kidney transplantation procedures.

Usually, the success rate is similar to the first one but the rate drops by and eventually, the fifth one has no successful track record so far.

The successful nature of the second kidney transplant arises because of the failure of the first kidney transplant. The doctors consider the issues which led to the failure of the second kidney transplant so that the success rate of the procedure is safe and guaranteed. For instance, the cases when the formation of blood clots resulted in the failure of the first one, the doctors can work beforehand and eliminate them before beginning with the second one. There could be many underlying reasons for the drop in the success rate and the doctor would consider it all. The best doctor would direct the patient in a way as to maintain the health to endure another transplant procedure and not to develop kidney disease anytime near in the future.

The doctors in cities with the best medical facilities are working on regulating a second transplant procedure because the tissues of the first transplanted kidney are already accepted by the body and it is tough to get the kidney of a similar tissue once again. Often, it is believed that finding a match for the second transplant process is quite long when compared to the already finding of the first transplanted kidney. Another major drawback that happens after the failure of the first transplant is the requirement of a better-matched kidney because of the immune system response after the first transplant has been rejected. To avoid the risk of failure of the second transplant, doctors take several preventive measures in advance.

If you don’t wish to go for a second transplant, you can still opt for ayurvedic treatment. Ayurvedic treatment has no potent risks attached to it such as failure of the treatment. The treatment works beneficially on your mind, body, and soul. Hence, ayurvedic medicines can be viewed as therapeutic. Further, there are no surgeries involved in keeping you healthy, just medicines, and a diet plan, and a few of the instances to help adopt a healthy lifestyle.

A healthy diet and yoga is an added help to getting better and synchronizing your energy level with your healing capacity. Yes, we humans do have a natural rejuvenating capacity. But our changing lifestyle and eating habits have suppressed our innate characteristics.

The main components of natural treatment to kidney disease are described as:

Medicine: Herbal medicines from rare herbs and spices to revive the kidneys so that they start functioning again.

Diet: A diet that is not a burden on the kidneys. A finely customized diet for each patient so that your kidneys can function without any hindrance yet your body gets all the nutrients as required. This approach allows the kidneys to get their strength back.

Yoga: According to Ayurvedic belief, the kidneys are linked to the second chakra and the element associated with them is fluid. A moderate amount of yoga will help improve the functioning of the kidneys. Yoga is one of the best ways to get the blood flowing to the kidneys, thereby, improving renal insufficiency.

During the entire treatment, it is assumed that the mind and body stay positive.
