Will Polycystic Kidney Shrink After Kidney Transplant

Will Polycystic Kidney Shrink After Kidney TransplantPolycystic kidneys mean numerous sac-fluid cysts growing in kidneys. As more and more kidney tissues are replaced by enlarged kidney cysts, kidney will fail to work gradually. Then, patients may need to accept kidney transplant. In this case, patients must want to know whether polycystic kidney will shrink after kidney transplant.

Fortunately, PKD commonly won’t relapse unless the donated kidney itself has the gene of Polycystic Kidney Disease. In recent years, kidney transplant operation just places the donated kidney into the body without removing the intrinsic kidney. As time goes on, polycystic kidneys become smaller and smaller. From this point, we can know PKD patients don’t need to worry about the relapse of this kidney disease after kidney transplant.

However, patients should worry other things. One is the long waiting list that makes many PKD patients not have the chance to do kidney transplant. The other is the rejection reaction. Because our own immune system views transplanted kidneys as foreign body, the immune system will reject it. Therefore, transplanted kidney may fail again after the surgery. In view of this, some alternative treatments may be more suitable for these patients.

For example, Hot Compress Therapy: This therapy is based on traditional Chinese medicine’s acupoint theory. Micronized herbal medicines are placed into two bags. These medicines have the property of increasing the permeability of cystic walls and curbing the secretion of sac fluid. Generally speaking, after about one or two months, cystic fluid can be eliminated out gradually. In the same time, some medicines, which have the effects of nourishing blood and regenerating the damaged kidney cells, are taken. Finally, kidneys can recover to work normally, and patients can avoid kidney transplant completely.

If you also have Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD), you can describe your illness condition to the doctor online. Therefore, they can help you develop a systemic treatment plan to shrink your polycystic kidneys and avoid kidney transplant.
