Help My Friend

Hi Everyone!

I need your help, please read my friend letter, and if you can, help us.

"Dear all! I am looking for anyone who has undergone transplant amid high DSA readings. I have had my first full pulmonary transplantation in March 2014, but the organ slowly failed in the following year. Doctors could not determine any particular cause, they called it BOS. In November 2015, I have received another lung, but following one-year follow-up tests this organ suffered fungal and pseudomonas infections. Due to high DSA levels caused by severe inflammation, an aggressive chronic rejection started, that has not been successfully tackled ever since. My DSA readings hit 11000 then, today – after 20 plasmapheresis treatments – it’s down to 3000. My third transplant request has been rejected due to my high DSA level.
I’m curious to know if anyone has ever undergone a third transplantation and if so, where it took place. Furthermore, if anyone has ever had similar DSA readings and how it was treated. My case is unprecedented In Hungary. I thank you in advance! ^_^ Thank you for sharing it!"

Thx a LOT!!
