SWOLLEN AFTER LIVER TRANSPLANT

I had a liver transplant 1/12/13 almost two months ago. I am swollen like I am 9 months pg and feel miserable. A couple of weeks ago, they X-Rayed y stomach but said no blockage. Before transplant I had ascities bad and was taking lasix and another water pill. Could they have seen the ascities in an X-Ray? It is even hard to eat much at a time.
They say all of my liver numbers are great, so what could it be? Please reply

ascites can persist for a couple of weeks-months in some patients after liver transplantation but almost always will resolve
