Lessa Ennis replied to Stephanie Cart's discussion What no one tells you in the group Transplant Rejection Survivors
"Stephanie, Thank you for sharing your story. It seems we only hear about the successful transplants and not the other ones. I donated a kidney exactly one year ago to my stepfather and he rejected within 3 months. They used OKT3 to treat it which…"

Anyone experience acute rejection past the 1 year mark with double lung transplant?

My dad had a double lung transplant 1.5 years ago after suffering with bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia and pulmonary hypertension for over 7 years. Last week he was submitted to the hospital for acute rejection. His doctor told us that they only see this in 1% of patients. I'm wondering if anyone here has experienced this or knows of someone who has and what the outcomes were? Right now my dad's biggest fear is that there will be permanent damage to his lungs and he will be back on oxygen permanently. I honestly think he fears that more than dying. As you can imagine this is devastating to him and my family. On top of the emotional devastation comes the heavy burden of financial stress. For a shameless plug: if you are able to, please donate to help pay for his medical expenses and/or share the below link with your network.We are truly grateful for any help, support or prayers that you can offer for my family.Thank you!…See More
