​​​​​​Follow-up Appointments

Before you leave the hospital we will arrange your follow-up clinic appointments. A detailed plan will be given to you, based on your progress and your doctor's recommendations.


Your first appointment

When
About 4 to 6 weeks after your operation​

Where
Toronto General Hospital
​Please check your appointment card for location.

What to Expect
The surgeon will determine how your incision is healing and how well you are recovering.

Your second appointment

When
Three months after your surgery, you will see the nephrologist (kidney doctor) who assessed you pre-operatively for a check-up.

Where
Multi-Care Kidney Clinic​
Toronto General Hospital
Norman Urquhart Building – 12th Floor​

How to Prepare
You will be sent requisitions to do blood and urine tests 1 week before the scheduled appointment.

Following your 3-month check-up appointment, you will be discharged back to the care of your family doctor. It is suggested that you see your family doctor for a yearly blood pressure check, serum (blood) creatinine level, and a urinalysis.

The donor team will be on hand to talk about any concerns or answer any questions that you might have throughout the donation process.

To change an appointment, call the living donor coordinator at 416 340 4577.​
