Joint pain after kidney transplant

I had a kidney transplant in 2005. Had had no problems with the transplant. All my levels have stayed in normal range. I did gain weight with the prednisone. Would like to lose weight...has anyone with a kidney transplant successfully and safely lost the weight after surgery? What did you do or what did your doctor recommend?

I also have considerable joint pain...especially after sitting or when getting up in the morning. Have had gout a few times...take allipurinol to counteract this now. Do any other patients have this joint issue? I am bothered mostly by pain in my hip, knee, and especially ankles. Maybe it is just high levels of uric acid as with gout. Any suggestions or anyone else experiencing this problem. My doctors have just said it could be arthritis?!?
