You need not worry about constipation.
I suggest you bring down your water intake to 4 litres.
Start taking Isapgol husk 30 gm daily with water for stool problem right away.
This will not interfere with your transplant drugs.
Also get your blood work done for Serum Sodium & Calcium,Phosphorus,Potassium & convey the reports
