post-transplant symptoms

Postby kris » Fri Aug 24, 2018 4:43 pm

I am 3 years post transplant. New kidney is working great. But I am not able to move on with life due to weird health symptoms. Docs can find no cause for these problems. Does anyone else have them? Could they relate to my old PKD kidneys hanging around? Here they are:

For 20 months I've had chronic nausea and vomiting. Lots of tests, no cause found.

I rarely get sick (colds etc). But I OFTEN get body aches, joint pain, headaches, chills. No fever. Could this be how my immune suppressed body shows that it has a cold?
