hi, as i dont know what kidney problem is your sister suffering from it is difficult to say whether a kidney transplant is going to solve her problem.kidney or renal transplant has its own problems and its not easy to say that is the best of solutions as it itself involves a large amount of expense plus its own known side effects which are very common llike a person has to stay on immuno-suppressive drugs, highly toxic drugs whole of his life.he/she has to stay a restricted life preventing hiself/herself from even a small infection.prerequisites for renal transplant are too many.not every time a transplant is successful and how much does it affect ones quality of life is again a question sincere advice would be take a good nephrologist's opinion, investigate thouroughly for the cause of renal damage as not few diseases relapse even post transplantation.
all the best.hope i have helped you in some way.
