What Might Your Life Look Like After Your Kidney Transplant?

Kidneys, ureter and a bladder x-ray

If you’re considering a kidney transplant there are many factors to think about. You’ll want to consider the procedure itself. Finding a doctor who is an expert in this field is important. Dr. Alan Benvenisty Vascular Surgeon is a well-known vascular and endovascular surgeon in New York City. He has extensive expertise in kidney and renal transplant surgery.

You’ll also want to consider what you life will look like after your kidney transplant. Asking yourself questions such as these are common:

  • Will I be able to exercise again?
  • Can I still travel to see my family?
  • Will my body strength or size be affected?
  • How long will I need to miss school or my work?

These are all legitimate questions that potential kidney transplant patients ask.  We will try to address a few concerns patients typically have. The important thing to remember is that everyone reacts and recovers differently, so these are generally what you can expect.

Most likely you will need to wear a medical identification bracelet or necklace all the time to signal that you have had a kidney transplant. You will most likely need to begin taking immunosuppressants and other medications that your doctor will recommend depending on your situation. You can and should resume exercise gradually after your transplant. Be sure a doctor is closely monitoring your exercise. Typically after two month you can return to school or work, but this is very dependent on many factors. You will be able to resume travel by driving and flying after a period of time as well, but you will need to ensure your doctor feels it’s safe.

Dr. Benvenisty was excellent and helped us with my husband's extensive leg swelling related to diabetes. We had another specialist who didn't help us last year. We're planning to stay with Dr. Benvenisty now! He's detailed oriented, matter-of-fact and friendly. An excellent doctor I would strongly recommend.


Dr. Benvenisty treated my mother in the ER during this time of the covid outbreak. He was a part of a fantastic team of doctors that were brought in to find out what was ailing my mother. He is first and for most experienced in many areas as my mother was diagnosed with pancreatitis. Although he transferred the surgery to another member of his team, he gave me his mobile and kept me informed of her condition/diagnosis at a time where I was unable to be with her myself because of this pandemic. His heart, compassion, understanding and bedside manner are things that I will not ever forget. He is an excellent doctor and truly a great human being.

Howard L.

Dr. Benvenisty is the most caring physician that I know. He is brilliant, highly ethical and trustworthy. His knowledge extends well beyond his specialty. He makes referrals to the best possible physicians. I know Dr. Benvenisty for 25 years and have complete confidence in him.
