Question (03/25/2011):

Swollen legs after 2.5 years kidney transplant

I was diagnosed end stage kidney disease patient in 2006.

I suffered from poly-cystic kidney disease on both kidneys.

After a year and half dialysis session I was able to go for transplant.

The transplant was successful and I have been living the new kidney.

Swollen legs after 2.5 years post transplant. What could be wrong?

Answer:

Dear Abdrazaq,

It could be from salt/fluid retention or congestive heart failure.

Other reason would include your kidney losing massive amount of proteins in urine and that lowering your blood albumin levels which shall cause swelling. I may be helped with water pills.

Swollen legs may be a sign of heart failure, kidney failure, or liver failure.
