September Biopsy Results

Sorry it took me so long to post the results from my biopsy two weeks ago but things have been a little crazy since I got back from Philly. So here we go, quick and to the point.

The dermatologist took one look at my back and chest and asked if I was on steroids. I said yes and he said that was the cause. He gave me a wash to use twice a day in the shower and then an ointment to put on the affected area after (I might have posted about this already but I'm not sure). He said as I get weened off the prednisone it should get better.

My biopsy results came in and as usual, no rejection! They increased my pm dose of tachrolimus and starting tomorrow (the 28th) my prednisone will be down to 7.5mg! Also, my doctors filled out paperwork for me to return to work. I'm hoping they put a date down but since they faxed the paperwork to the office and mailed the original back to me I haven't seen it yet.

My next biopsy is scheduled for October 12th. So I'm officially on a four week schedule!

I'm still here in Grand Rapids at my Aunt Karen's house and I've been taking in ArtPrize as much as I can. I'll talk more about my trip in my next post once I get back home and settled.

Thanks again to everyone for your continued support and I will keep you posted if anything changes.

  1. Hi Bryan:
    Hope you are doing well. It was really great seeing you and your Dad after so many years.
    I told you Brittany was living in Philly and I told her about you having to go there. She said she would love to have you stay at her place when you are in town. If you want to get a hold of her her email is bel35@drexel.edu or you can call her on her cell 720-785-4661.
    Take care.
