Oh, Cath...what a worry. I think that the Hep/TP Docs will give this every effort to clear stones, diagnose issues and that the biopsy will be a great help.
Mike is going on 4 years post TP and has had several rejection episodes. They called them ACUTE, which I took to mean temporary. Now that his Hep C is cleared, they are waiting 1 year post treatment to do another biopsy because last biopsy it was unclear to them whether he had chronic rejection or the Hep C changes in his nice new liver. At the cellular level the conversation is way beyond my ability to understand.
Since the rejection episodes, they have put Mike on a second antirjection med WITH the prograf and it has changed some over time as he has developed side effects to CellCept, Rapamune, and I forget the third one...it is like Cellcept. Now he takes Zortress and Prograf.
At the moment he is off the Zortress as he had
open heart surgery Monday. They withheld the prograf today and yesterday also and may put him back on Tomorrow. It makes me very worried.
I feel strongly that the docs will wok this out.
You can always go to a second center for a second opinion if you are not confident. Where are you?
