I had three of four parathyroids removed, while on dialysis. High PTH post renal Tx is not uncommon. Treatment is much like being on dialysis with the addition of Calcium based "binders' to lower phosphorus levels in the bloodstream. Similar diet restrictions (less dairy, avoiding high phosphorus foods) may help ease this issue's impact. There are medications (Renvela, Phoslo,...) that can be prescribed, though you might include calcium based antacids with meals, which are much less expensive, to determine if this has any effect. I added links below to investigate the issue. I hope you find relief soon.

Everyone metabolizes Tacrograf (Tacrolimus) at different rates. As a recipient, all you can do is to take your meds on time and avoid certain foods (Grapefruit, Tamarind, & Pomegranate) because these interfere with the rate of absorption. I would ask, how much water/fluid are you drinking? This issue is one for your Tx team to resolve, which I am sure they will. Try to stay calm as they do.
Congratulations on your TX. I received my kidney on Jan 22. 2017. My right leg was very swollen to the point I did not recognize it. However, they removed my stint and I begin to flow much easier. The swelling decreased and at this time just minimal swelling. It sounds like you got yours around the time I got mine The fluids should be dissolving into the body as time goes on. My kidney had a incision that just leaked constantly until about a week ago. After it healed, the swelling began to decrease. I say give it a little more time. My doctors did not put me on any diuretics because that is tough on the Kidneys...
