Had my biopsy yesterday. 24hrs later and the anesthesia has finally worn off enough for me to post an update. My lungs showed a lot of inflammation and suprising enough, my nerves have re-attached themselves in my donor lungs. Every time they would "snip" a little sample off my lungs, I would wake up in pain. For those of you who don't know, donor lungs usually do not have working nerve endings because of the transplant process and not being able to reattach them. I'm unique though! yay me! This explains why my right side has been hurting so bad the past 2 years, it's probably my stent causing the pain.
Anyway, waiting back on both the biopsys and cultures they took. Due to the inflammation and low lung funtion, my docs say that if an infection doesn't show it's ugly head, then it's most likely chronic rejection I've been dealing with all this time. Pretty scary, but not exactly a surprise. I should get results in a week, so prayers would be wonderful. Thanks friends!
