​​​​​Post Liver Transplant Surgery

Once a patient is discharged, he/she is required to visit the transplant outpatient clinic at Baylor twice a week for two weeks and then once a week for three months. During this time, the transplant coordinator works with the patient to educate them about new medications, signs of infection, rejection, and future physical expectations. 

Once clinic visits conclude, a patient may return to his/her primary care physician. Labwork is required weekly for the first month, every other week for the second month, and monthly thereafter. Annual evaluations are done at the transplant center for the one, two, and five-year anniversaries of a patient's transplant and every five years following. Patients with previous viral hepatitis are required to have yearly evaluations.​
