I wanted to update you guys on my chest/back pain and consequent lung biopsy last week. I have some airway rejection going on inside my lungs. And I thank my body for sending off an alert sign to me so that we had a reason to go in and do a biopsy. I am starting treatment today of high dose prednisone (a medication I take everyday and will forever, but at a much much much higher dose than usual.) This should take care of the inflammation/rejection. Yes, of course this freaks me out. I haven't had an episode of rejection with these lungs yet and was hoping for a long long course of none of this, considering chronic rejection destroyed my last lungs. This is not chronic, but yes every case of any rejection makes chronic more plausible. However, this is a very very low grade and should be just a page in a very long book.
So here is to my first day on 60 mg of prednisone, which will make me a crazy person for the rest of the month!
