@deejean123, Welcome to Connect. I am 7 years post liver/kidney transplant. I have not experienced the problem that you are describing. I can understand your not wanting to go to the ER. But if you start to develop worsening symptoms, or a fever, please go and get it checked out.
Unfortunately, our health complications don’t always coincide with our scheduled appointments. I encourage you to contact your transplant coordinator at Cleveland Clinic. He/she would be the best qualified to give you some advice.
I live 800 miles away from my transplant center. And I have experienced much comfort and advice by way of phone communication. Plus they have also spoken with my local docs when necessary.
I hope you can resolve this issue. I’m interested in learning what is going on, in case I ever experience anything similar.
Rosemary

I am 3 ur past liver transplant and I am sleeping for days and all the sudden it looks like I'm getting a hernia.

I had a liver and kidney transplant 10/24/20. I have the same symptoms as you described. I had a cat and it shows fluid, but prescribed diuretics rather than drain. My right side has eased up, but my stomach is way bloated especially under belly button. I also don’t sleep well at all.
