Just talked to my doctor about the biopsy results. He confirmed that the kidney has less inflammation but is not out of the woods yet; also my immune system is attacking the transplanted artery, which shows inflammation in the lining. He will bring the results to their weekly committee meeting of surgeons and nephrologists Monday to get a consensus on treatment. He said they may suggest a very aggressive treatment with ATG infusions. This will require me to check in to the hospital for a couple days, and recover at home a couple days.
He said in the past they didn’t concern themselves with the artery, but have found it dramatically reduces long-term graft survival if not treated. So I will know more probably Tuesday morning.
