  • Yes, it is no absolutely true that sometimes your eyelids become puffy after kidney transplant. And, you are not the only one who faces this issue; several other people also face this same situation. Well, if your kidney transplant has done just now then it is not good to take any other medicine, so, I think it is better if you try some home remedies to get rid of eye puffiness.

    • You can apply slices of potatoes and cucumber on your eyes for about half an hour for some regular days.
    • Also, you can apply egg white on your eyelids and keep if for half an hour and then wash your eyes with water once it becomes dry.

    So, try these and get rid of puffy eyelids at your home only.
