Who can I speak to if I have concerns about my kidney transplant?

If you have concerns about your kidney transplant you should speak to your transplant social worker. Your transplant social worker is the individual who will help connect you with those who can assist in coping with your new kidney, as well as coping with the waiting period prior to a transplant. Your family may also experience concerns and have questions, which can also be addressed by the social worker. Again, the social worker can provide resources and support to family members and others in coping with your transplant process.
