What is my expected follow up care after hospital discharge? (Clinics and labwork)

You will have to follow up with your liver transplant team after your transplant to make sure that your new liver remains healthy. Typically, patients are seen every week for the first month post transplant, and then will reduce in frequency over time. Please expect to have frequent lab work done. Any additional testing to monitor your health and liver function will vary from patient to patient. Tests may include abdominal scans, ultrasounds, and liver biopsies.
