A few questions post transplant
I received a kidney transplant in January, 2022. The kidney is doing fine, but otherwise the recovery has been difficult. This includes the returns to the hospital for two separate bouts of sepsis, as well as difficulty in getting blood pressure and blood sugar under control. All of these seem OK at this point. I am 75 and I had a prior heart attack about 10 years ago, so I was not the best candidate for a kidney transplant.
A few questions: as to the famous Transplant bump in my abdomen, is that permanent or does that subside overtime? Second, as to the drinking of 3 L of liquid a day, is that permanent or is that only for a certain period of time?
I realize I can get answers from my doctor, but I am interested in folks real life experience.
