Does anyone experience this post transplant? My dad is nearly a year post transplant and all bloods are good. Wonder whether a side effect of the anti rejection meds although only had this problem recently. Many thanks

He should tell his GP/Consultant about this, in the mean time if he can try to get his ankles above his bum when he is sitting, and a pillow to put his feet on when in bed should help.

The sooner he tells the medics the better.
