Hi @leahdrose 😊 No need to apologize! I am so happy to hear from you!
It's nice to hear that you have a remote part time job that you are enjoying. With covid, a remote job is perfect and recovering from the kidney transplant makes the part time hours advantageous too!
It sounds like your appointment at UCLA went well. I know what you mean about a mixed bag of good test numbers and a few test numbers that need to be watched…..That's my experience too.
It's great to know about the blood test that monitors for signs of rejection! My doctor recently mentioned a test called "Allosure" which sounds very similar to the test you mentioned. (Maybe it's just a different brand or manufacturer).
It sounds like you will continue to monitor and the good news is nothing sounds urgent. I like the idea that you will only biopsy if the blood test shows it's needed.
I was also happy to hear that you have great confidence in your UCLA transplant doctors and team. They have an excellent reputation!
Please keep me posted on your results from today and whether things are calming down or you need the biopsy.
A lot of your blood work results sound really good so I am hoping that you will be pleasantly surprised.
Will you receive the results from today's blood work this week?

@hello1234. I assume today's tests include Tacrolimus, BK and CMV viruses. It takes a few days for the results to come. Last week's Tacrolimus was high, so dosage was reduced from 6 and 6 to 6 and 5. My nephro thinks the Cellcept, currently 1 and 1, is too low. However, it's the most I can tolerate. Otherwise, I'll end up again with nasty on and off infections and diarrhea. He mentioned about switching it to Mycofortic. I read it is usually given with Cyclosporine. If that's the case, I smell another adjustment. Hayst 🙁
