Hi, it's 3 weeks today since my brother received his new liver. He has a lot of fluid in his abdomen and legs, approximately 20kgs worth, he's struggling to walk and is very sore. The docs have stopped his water tablet and said that eventually it should go away with him moving more but he's walking with crutches at the moment and is struggling to go very far. Has anyone else suffered from this post transplant and if so how long did it take to go and what treatment were they given if any for it. He had his first check up next week. Thanks in advance for any advice, I feel really helpless as there's not much I can do other than try to help him move more and try to keep his spirits up.
