What is the reason for acute rejection of the kidney after a renal transplant surgery?

Q: My mother has undergone a renal transplant surgery. On the 2nd day the kidney went for acute rejection. My mother has recovered and is going to get discharged soon. I have a doubt whether the rejection happened earlier will affect her in future. Will she be normal? The doctor assures that all her creatinine level, blood sugar, urea are normal. Please solve my doubt.

A:After kidney transplant, there is a chance of acute rejections. The body's immune system despite immunosuppressive agents always considers the kidney as foreign and therefore the chances of acute rejection. Acute rejection usually responds to treatment and kidney function improves. However, the chances of acute rejection continues throughout the life of transplant and one should not tamper with the prescribed medicines ever. This might happen even many years after the transplantation. Thus need for regular monitoring.
