Your kidney function, a major concern for many advanced heart failure patients, will likely improve as well. You should be able to resume most of your normal activities with very few limitations. In time, recipients will enjoy the freedom and the energy it adds to their life.

“It’s not just a second chance at life—it is LIFE!”
