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.
