I have a tendency to loose weight very fast. I also had a thyroid test done. The doctor says its normal. I have 2 kids, one i just had 4 months ago and was a size 5 the next day after birth. I have been doing lots of exams since march for my kidneys. I am a kidney donor and have passed all tests, now i have the date for the transplant surgery,its on nov 23rd this year. I know im going to loose more weight with recovery after surgery, I dont know what to do, im willing to go to the gym if i can gain weight to turn it into muscle. I dont know what other test to do to find out why i cant gain weight,my mother keeps medical history to herself. I want to be from an extra small to a large in size, also healthy weight for before surgery and after,please somebody help me or guide me to the right person to see, I live in washington state.

Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
Hi,

Swelling limited to feet and ankles that occurs by evening and fades by elevation or next morning is dependent in nature, and usually occurs in those people who are subjected to prolonged periods of standing and is physiological in nature. In case it it persists and do not go away with rest then that should be considered as pathological. You need to get a kidney function test done along with a venous color Doppler study to rule out the two of the most common pathological causes.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Rohan Shanker Tiwari, Orthopedic Surgeon
