Heart Biopsy and GI Procedure
Daniel did well with his heart biopsy and GI procedure in fact he probably will not need to see GI again unless a problem arises.
The heart pressures were great and the pressure in the large vessel (IVC) closest to his liver was lower. This had a positive effect on the varices (enlarged veins) in his esophagus as they were considerable smaller. This should mean good news for Dan’s liver. The biopsy from the heart came back 1R which is mild rejection but the special stain tests they do to see if it’s from Antibodies attacking the tissue were clear without anything that would suggest Antibody Mediated Rejection (AMR). Big sigh of relief and thankful to God for these past 6 weeks. Dan is headed to ACH for further blood work but overall a good report.
