I had a kidney transplant 10 months ago and everything was fine till the past 2 weeks.

I started to feel a weird "feeling" above the transplant site (Which is on the right side), it's not really painfull but somekind of discomfort + tingles + Bloating stomach + a lot of gas. I am wondering about it.

All medical tests are ok, no recent weight gain and the doctor told me not to worry about it.

Did anyone here ever experience this please ?

Thank you very much


P.S : Sorry for my english :)

  • Hi Gillaume, my kidney transplant is also a year old I too get gas and itching everywhere in my body, in the oddest places like eyelashes (although I'm not using much eye makeup at all. I moisturise and massage my skin about twice a day. My potassium level is ok also. People please help Guillaum and me both. The itching is really uncomfortable. We need advice, please
  • Hi everyone, there were plenty of gas everywhere. I was taking prednisolone without eating. I feel much better now..<br/>
    I feel some itching sometimes too.
  • Do any of you guys get mild Itching sometimes even though your kidney function is good?

    • Yes although it's only been itching like this for about a month and the neph team is really happy with my kidney progress
  • Hi Guillaume,

     The discomfort, gas, bloating and the tingling  may be related to the Cellcept  In all cases, heed the words of your doctor and don't worry about it unless it becomes unbearable or the team gets worried.

  • Hi!

    My transplant is  1.5 years ago.

    Everything healthy now.

    I also sometimes feel both transplants ( kidney and pancreas). It is of no consern as scars can sometimes itch or be felt in another way.

    So why shouldnt scartissue inside your belly do that.

    Do not worry, Katharina
