Within Normal…

The results from my appointment yesterday are in...

The most important result is the biopsy showed NO REJECTION!!!! The chest X-ray did not show any rib fractures to explain the rib pain that I'm experiencing. The heart transplant team feels that it is Costochondritis and I should continue with Tylenol as needed for the discomfort. My labs are all within normal limits. My white blood cell count is even back to normal so there is no indication of an infection. My Tacrolimus level is 9.2 and my dose will remain the same. The prednisone taper will continue. I was instructed to take 7.5mg a day for 2 weeks and then 5 mg a day until my next clinic appointment and biopsy scheduled for September 19,2023. I also get to stop a couple medications next week. I will stop the Cresemba (anti fungal) and Famvir (anti viral).

I'm excited for these changes and hopeful that I will feel better on a more consistent basis.

I don't really understand why I am feeling so lousy for the past few days but the test results are all good so I'm confident that I'm just having a few "bad days"

Wishing everyone a good day!

Each 💔 beat matters
