I was release from OSU Tuesday evening. I spent the past 2 weeks in the hospital for rejection and ended up taking 10 out of the 14 ATG treatment. I was having to many side effect to continue with the other 4 days. The try to do a biopsy on my pancreas but only the fatty tissue around it. I was sent home on steroids and a bunch of other meds and along with the doctor changing my anti rejection. My pancreas is not working 100% right now it's had so much go on with it in the past month. I've also had to start taking a pill for my sugar, checking my sugar again, and watch what I eat. I never thought I would spend my 1 year anniversary in rejection. The way my transplant doctors talk they've been watching my slide into rejection for a little over a month. If my pancreas isn't damage I will have surgery this summer to take my pancreas from bladder to my bowel because my main problem right now. The said if they did surgery now it would my pancreas in shock. I've also told my doctor if my pancreas fails I want to go back on the list for another pancreas transplant. I couldn't believe that today was Thanksgiving because I've spent about a month in the hospital give or take couple days. But I have so much to be Thankful for. 

 

I want to to Thank Gary and Wanda for me being there for me when I was starting to show sign of rejection they talk to my on skype till one of my parents got home.

Morgan,

Thinking of you  as you  recover  from this  scary  rejection  episode.

I  pray  your  Panc   didn't  suffer  too  much  damage  so they  can  do  the  planned  surgery.

 

I  too had  a  scary  experience on   my  anniversary.           On  my  anniversary   (  Wed  nov 9)  I  did  my  normal  labs.             Coordinator  called  to  tell me  my  amylase  and  lipase  were  elevated.   I  was  instructed  to   repeat  labs  on  Mon   unless  I  started having   symptoms.     Numbers  were  worse,  while  sugars  remained  great,  I  was  asymptomatic.            I  was  told  to   such  high  numbers  can  be  causes  by  constipation  or  diarrhea.        I  was  instructed  to  drink  Mag  CItrate  and  repeat  labs  on  We.                  Numbers  came  back  normal.            The  following  Wed  numbers  were  even  better.

 

Sending  prayers  for  a  speedy  recovery. 

(((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))))))))))
