What is Liver Transplant?

A liver transplant is a complex surgical procedure that involves the replacement of a damaged or non-functional liver with a healthy lobe taken from a suitable donor. The procedure is usually recommended to patients suffering from acute or chronic liver failure, who are not responding well to medication.

 The various symptoms associated with liver failure include:

  • Jaundice like symptoms that include yellowing of skin and eyes
  • Nausea and vomiting, especially when you eat something
  • Ascites or swelling in the abdomen
  • Persistent pain and discomfort in the abdomen
  • Feeling dizzy and disoriented
  • Sleeplessness

Some of the major causes of liver failure include:

  • Hepatitis
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals
  • Prescription medication
  • Certain metabolic diseases
  • Hepatic cancer
  • Autoimmune or genetic diseases
  • Metabolic disease

Things you need to know

  • The surgery may take about 12 hours or even more
  • After the transplant, you will be shifted to the intensive care unit, where you will be kept under observation for a few days
  • The duration of hospitalization varies from one patient to another and is usually around a week. 
  • Your average stay will be around 4 to 6 weeks during which you will be required to go for regular check-ups.
