A kidney transplant would be better because a kidney machine doesn't fix the problem, it just takes the toxins out of the body. Also you have to spend, on average, 3-4 days a week at hospital for dialysis. You have to take the anti-rejection drugs the rest of your life probably but that is a small price to pay compared to losing your life, I would think, however you can reject the kidney and possibly forfit your life.

Based on the source of donated kidney, kidney transplant can be classified as deceased donor or living donor transplant. Answer: To the question of HOW a kidney transplant is done. The donor kidney will be extracted including part of the urinary tract and vein/arteries. The blood is extracted from the kidney and it is flushed clean. Then transported on ice to where the recipient is. The donor kidney is transplanted into the person in their lower abdomen. They join the veins/artery etc to the recipients, having disconnected them from the existing bad kidney. They do not take out the recipients bad kidneys (unless it has tumour) but leaves them there, as no point in performing unnecessary surgery.


If both of the patients kidney's have failed, they need a kidney transplant to live. (Dialysis is not a permenent solution). This is why kidney transplants happen. (Unfortunately kidney disease rarely affects just one kidney).A kidney transplant is important because your kidney has stopped working so you need a new one to help filter your blood. Your blood can be filtered with one kidney. Unless you want to be hooked up to a machine it is best to have at least one kidney. If your kidneys is gone for too long then your blood will clog in one space and you will die.hope this helps JBH
