i just received a kidney transplant about 2 weeks ago. i recently noticed my urine was a dark brown color and had a very strong odor. i had a stent placed in my ureter so could this be the reason? also, i have not been able to sleep at night, taking sleeping pills dosnt even work. im afraid of rejection. please help!
The symptoms seem to be related to a urinary tract infection. I suggest to do a urine test to confirm the diagnosis. Meanwhile,I suggest using anti inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen to relieve the symptoms. I also suggest to drink liquids and especially cranberry juice.
Hope my answer was helpful. If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.
