@gbcapecod, I'm not a heart transplant recipient; I'm liver and kidney transplant recipient. Every year at my annual evaluation, there are labs and protocol tests scheduled to keep check on my liver and kidney. On a side note, I had a progressive liver disease that could return and it would show up in my bile ducts and my labs. The procedures are, I'm sure, different for a heart transplant. What kind of test was given, or how did the doctor discover the CAV? How will they keep it monitored? Will you experience any telltale symptoms?
