@hello1234, thank you for your reply.
BK virus <34.50, CMV <500, Creatinine 1.12 slightly elevated from last time. My regular nephrologist referred me to another nephrologist in the group plan to further analyze my case. No schedule for biopsy yet. I’m reluctant to have biopsy due to risks involved, and it might further damage the new kidney. But if it’s extremely necessary, then I have no choice. I have an appointment with transplant nephrologist at UCLA tomorrow. Will keep you updated.

Hi @leahdrose 😊 Sounds like good news to me. Your numbers appear to be only a smidgen elevated, so I totally understand why they are not pushing a biopsy.

From my layman point of view, nothing seems urgent. (But it's good that your team of docs are investigating the slight elevation).

How do you feel? Are you feeling calmer after seeing your lab work?

Regarding biopsies – At Mayo, our "protocol" kidney biopsies are performed at 4 months, 1 year, 2 year, 4 year. What protocol does UCLA follow for your biopsy timing?

I hope you are feeling better after all that stress regarding infection and possible signs of rejection. It looks like things are starting to settle nicely for you? ❤

Hang in there Leah! We’ll be sending positive healing thoughts your way!
