Hi Doctor, I am 24 years old dialysis patient having creatinine of 7.5 I am planning for kidney transplant in next few months. What will be the life span of transplanted kidney. If the transplanted kidney damages after 5-10 years. Is it possible to do transplantation or back to dialysis again after some time. What are the risks involved in it? Please help me out!

Transplanted kidneys can work for 10 to 15 years or even more if good care is taken. A repeat transplant with interim dialysis is possible before going for a retransplant. There are many factors on which the life of kidney depends and your nephrology team will be the best source for this information.
