Ginger after transplantation...

Hello all, I had a kidney/pancreas transplant on 9/20/2013 and I know that the dietitian said to stay away from herbal supplements and certain fruit but I was wondering if anyone knew if it is safe to eat ginger candy. Before my transplant I had horrible nausea for almost half of my life ( I am 27) and someone gave me a candy called Gin-Gins and I fell in love with them. I know that the safest thing to do is ask one of the clinics care team which I plan toy do at my next appointment for labs but I was wanting to hear what other patients knew. I was put on the list and was hitting my 4th month on it when they called with a match and I have to admit that I was not fully prepared for the entire thing and didn't realize how much it takes a toll on emotions. I am trying to find some ways to learn how to cope with the changes that have taken place so if anybody knows a good source of online support tools and if there are anr. eccomend any kind of online support group or the best place to get better educated I would really be grateful. My name is Amanda and I was on dialysis for a little over 2 years, started a few daya after turning 25 and I guess it is a little hard dealing with all of this and if I could understand more of what to expect as I continue to recober then it might not be so hard. Any and all advice or suggestions or tips would be much appreciated.
