Hair loss after 7 weeks of transplant.

Hi my name is Mary. On December 6 2016, i had a kidney transplant. Both of my kidneys were removed because they were covered in cysts (polycycstic) a total of 23kg. Too big for my body.Recently my hair is thinning, I have dark circles and swelling under my eyes. Has anyone has these issues? Is it th medication? Will it go away? They already reduce my prednisone to 15ml every other day (I couldn't sleep at all).Appreciate any feedback.ThanksSee More
