Below we've compiled information to help parents and caregivers understand the medical and emotional needs of your child or teen once they go home after an intestine transplant.
Learn about how advances in organ preservation, surgical technique, immunosuppression and post-operative care have all contributed to better survival rates among young intestine transplant patients and a much better quality of life after transplantation.
Compliance to a medication regimen is crucial to maintaining good health after an intestine transplant. Learn about what constitutes noncompliance, the consequences of noncompliance, the reasons patients are noncompliant, and how to increase compliance.
Physical therapy after major surgery like an intestine transplant helps children build strength, endurance and flexibility. Learn more about what physical therapy is, why intestine transplant patients need it, and what your child will do during physical therapy.
