A patient says, "I just had a kidney transplant 2 days ago. Now the doctor says I have to go on dialysis for 2 weeks. I don't understand all of this." How should the nurse respond?
1. "Your transplant was not successful, so dialysis is necessary."
2.  "Because your transplant was not from a living donor, it may take a while for the kidney to recover."
3. "We told you about this before surgery. Don't you remember?"
4. "I'm afraid your kidney was not a good match. We have to support you with dialysis while we look for another kidney to transplant."

The answer is 2
Rationales:
1. There is no evidence that this transplant was not successful at this point.
2. When the organ is from a nonliving donor, ischemia may slow the kidney's response. Dialysis allows time for the kidney to recover, which generally takes about 2 weeks.
3. This response does not address the patient's question.
4. There is no evidence that the patient will need a second transplant.
