Voriconazole ( VFEND )

Has anyone experienced numbness of the feet taking VFEND?  I told my TX team and he took me off,  VFEND,  3 months ago, saying that would cause the numbness.  But I am still numb in some parts of my feet.  How long will this last?  My feet also stay cold. See More

Way to go Darlene:

Hang in there, it just keeps getting better and better.  You will have ups and downs, just follow the doctors orders and don't get too careless the first year.  By that I mean wear your mask, use your hand sanitizer, take your pills on time and stay active in your home even if its just walking or walking up and down stairs.  It took me a year and a half before I felt close to normal.  If you need to chat you can email me at kennethjude@comcast.net.

Keep your head up  

Ken Carrell

Cardiac biopsy - how often?

Hi,First post folks. I'll begin with quick background: My 15-year old daughter had a heart transplant 6 months ago after having severe dilated cardiomyopathy with left ventricular noncompaction (now known to be a result of a genetic mutation original to her). Anyway, transplant was at the highly acclaimed Columbia/NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital - to which we moved for waiting for the heart, transplant, and follow-up care.

Bottom line- much fewer cardiac biopsies.I'm wondering if you know the different protocols in checking for solid organ rejection / heart - and how they differ from different medical…See More
