I went up to Kings Hospital yesterday for one of my routine post transplant consultancies. I'm abut 16 months post transplant now and the issues I now have are high blood pressure yesterday was 165\105, so I'm now taking blood pressure tablets. I understand this can be a side effect of the tacrolimus immunosuppressents, however I'm on minimal amounts anyway and yesterday was reduced even more to just 0.5mg a day (I'm also on 2mg sirolimus ).
Also since transplant I've put on about 2.5 stone, I'm over weight at about 16 stone. Has anyone else put on weight like this post transplant?
I've also got slightly raised GGT, its 57 but should be below 45. Apparently this is no big issue as I also had an Ultra Sound to check bile ducts, rejection etc and there were no signs.
