Foot Pain Post Transplant?

Hello All,

I’m 13 months post liver transplant and I’m having some terrible foot
pain. Went to a podiatrist who diagnosed me with Plantar Fasciitis and
Plantar Fibromatosis. Has anyone in the group experienced this after
transplant? I’m wondering if there’s a correlation with the immune
suppressant meds or a vitamin deficiency, etc. I’d appreciate your
thoughts on this. Thanks!

Hey, Mark.

We did experience a minor pains and extreme sensitivity to heat in the feet. We assumed it was one of the many side effects of the body being rebooted in a sense. Interested in what you find though and I hope you find relief soon.

Take care.

Thanks Gloria. I’ll let you know how things work out. Right now the doctor has put me in a stability shoe and they’ve ordered special orthotics. I’m rolling frozen water bottles under my feet daily and that helps some, but what would really help is an anti-inflammatory, but…with the anti-rejection meds my docs say a big NO to that. Oh well, my feet may hurt but I’m alive and well otherwise :relaxed:
