Part of the Organ and Tissue Transplantation book series (OTT)


The purpose of this chapter is to give a parent’s perspective on raising a child after a transplant. No matter the age of the child you will have tons of questions. One could experience a transplant as an infant or as a teen. Regardless of the age it is overwhelming. Learn to ask questions. Write anything down that pops into your mind. Don’t ever hesitate thinking that your question has no merit. “No question is ever dumb” besides, that is why the transplant team is there.
