I have underwent Kidney transplant in year 2014,India. i am doing fine now but i have to return to work or loose job. is there anyone going to job now any tips or suggestions
Is any Kidney Transplanted Person going ... - Kidney Transplant
i asked my Doctors regarding it but they mentioned take care and follow precautions but finally its your call to go out for job. Eben going out to buy groceries its scary
I understand that not everyone is able to work from home. Just be EXTRA careful with wearing mask, changing them if suspect of contamination, keeping 6 feet distance from people at work, and wash your hands as often as possible. Stay alert!
Hi Aashith, just had my 11th year post transplant anniversary appointment with my medical team. My dr. said that if the restaurant I work at is being very cautious, ( of course I am) I may return to work on a very part time basis.
All the best to you as we navigate through these crazy times.
I work in a hospital. I had my transplant in April and returned to work after 12 weeks. This is my second week back to work.
Thank you. Taking many precautions. And other than work I don't really go anywhere . Stay safe!
Since a restaurant is involved in your work routine, There is an element of unknown, you really don't know specially in case of asymptomatic covid people-(from what I Understand they shed maximum virus), I would wear in addition to the mask were a face shield too.
I am mainly concerned about markets and grocery shops. people dont follow social distancing there also many dont wear masks properly. It may be just a flu according to them but its not the same for us.
My husband (almost 4 years post transplant) has been working and never got a break since the virus started. He's GM at a restaurant, but since phase 1 begin people still prefer takeout instead of dine in. He's been extra careful, Wear his mask and hand sanitize all the time. Good luck to you.
I am also from india , and as per the condition of our country because of this covid issue... i think you should avoid going out.. or talk to yoir doctor about this , because my doctor clearly restricted me to going out even my brother and dad go for work when they enter the house i don't meet them just be in my room and at morning when the go out after that i wear mask before going out of my room..(suggested by my doctor even one of my friend who is also a transplant patient doing same we both are under different doctors but the suggestion is same)
I started going to job from 3rd August. i asked for a separate room and the company allowed it. i wear a 3M half face respirator (7502) with P100 filters (7093). as its used by doctors.
What you say is a best option. so i had quit work in May and was staying in home for 2 months. but the more i stayed in home the more scared i was regarding COVID. (and started to get depressed)
i interact with limited persons. always ask the opposite person to wear mask.
and pray to god so that he take care.
Just take it easy on your eating habits because you tend to loose control while working.
I'm a teacher and here are some of the precautions I take:
1) When I get home, take off your work clothes ASAP (have separate clothes to wear at home that never go outside)
2) Take a shower after work if you feel like it
3) Take off your shoes and don't wear work shoes around the house
4) Wash your hands after every interaction
5) Don't touch door handles (use foot, back or elbows to open doors if possible)
Good luck to you!!
Stay safe and all the best
