For the first 2 months after your operation, we will see you once a week for blood tests. As you recover you will not need to come to the clinic as often.​

  • ​Bring all medications and a list of your medications to each clinic visit
  • Bring a list of questions
  • Have your bloodwork, chest X-ray and pulmonary function tests done before the clinic, as instructed by your transplant coordinator.

* Do you live outside the GTA?​

Patients who live outside the GTA are required to stay local for the first 3 months after their transplant.

Tips for clinic:​

  • Before each clinic visit, it is a good idea to check Easy Call to see if there has been a change in your scheduled appointment.
  • When you arrive for every appointment, check in with the transplant reception area and inform the receptionist if your phone number, address, or other contact information has changed.
  • Inform the receptionist if you have a new cough, fever or diarrhea.
  • Attend all scheduled appointments. If you are unable to make your appointment, call the receptionist and reschedule at: 416 340 4800 Ext. 4113.
  • ​Book your next clinic appointment before you leave.
