  • Hello as it has been 1 month post kidney transplant and doctors ask me to walk and whenever i walk i feel like breathing heavily . 

    Pls anyone of you advice me on that . Is there similar problem with you guys . Also i m getting married in January,  which is 6 month post transplant , so , is there any problem getting married 6 month post transplant .

    • I think you should work with your team to find the answer, so that you may enjoy a happy and healthy married life. It is early on, in life with a Tx, and you owe it to yourself to make it as good as it can be.

  • Hi Friends 

    How are u all? Hope you all are doing great and enjoying best of life .

    Im on 4th year of kidney transplant. Slowly im losing appetite and  losing weight . I have lost 5kgs in last one year. I have noticed thining of muscles . I don't feel like eating ,in fact very sight of food makes me nauseous ,but im still able to eat sweets and fruits, only problem is with salty food. Lately my creatinine has increased due to UTI klebsiella and lac level . But now has come down n it's normal now. My blood reports KFT, LFT, Chest MRI, CBC,lipid profile everthing is normal. Don't know why im losing weight and appetite . I feel weak and strength less . Always tired . My gastro has advised endoscopy . Next week i will get it done . Nephrologist is able to understand he blames my sedentary life style . But i don't think so . Any idea friends what could be the reason behind all this .

    thanks in advance  

    • One would think if you are sedentary, you would gain weight. The "tag team of Prednisone and Prograf (Prednisolone & Tacrolimus) combine to increase weight in most recipients. Perhaps this is related to the  Klebsiella UTI you endured. I will be hoping and be praying for relief for you. Keep us updated.

      • Thanks kidneyboy i will keep u updated. Day after tomorrow im going for upper gi endoscopy .

        • Hi, endoscopy report came out normal. Some blood tests were also done but all came out normal. But im still continuing to lose weight. This steady decline is worrisome . My neph is confused . 

  • Can i drive bike or car after my kidney transplant and it is only 1 months of my transplant period . In how many days i can be back to my normal life????

    • Just because you "can," doesn't mean you should. Everyone is different, as is their recovery.  This is a question to ask your Tx team to discuss how stable you have become. I do not believe there are any impediments to driving, except that you have some very powerful medications flowing through your blood that could affect ability, at times (fatigue, vision, ...)

      As for resuming your "normal" life, I'm afraid that will not be in your future. You are forever changed after a transplant.  You will always be on guard to protect your Tx, avoiding sources of infection, paying attention to diet, medications, and more. Your priorities must now be yourself and your Tx first. You may get close, but this is a chance at a new life, to become what you want it to be.
