I’m 17 months post transplant. Now for the last 3-4 months I had noticed slight swelling on the right leg which is the side I was transplanted and I knew that was a possibility so wasn’t too worried. Now it is in both legs but doesn’t occur till late afternoon. I was told I could use a low dose diuretic to help. But as we now they have to be taken first thing in the morning. And I was told only use them when absolutely necessary. My issue is morning time my legs are fine so I don’t know when I’m going to need them or not. If I wear socks even with no elastic that creates major swelling so right now I don’t know what the hell im supposed to do. Any advice would really be appreciated as I’m a single mum of two very active boys and I’m struggling to keep up.
