Hello, my wife had a transplant in dec 2014 for seronegative acute liver failure with undiagnosed background PSC. She's been back to hospital 7 times, currently in at kings for last 10 days. She's had cmv multiple times and is just being treated for it. However, the consultant thinks she also has something called antibody mediated rejection, it doesn't normally happen with the liver but is more common with kidney or heart transplants. Apparently it can resemble biliary complications, this figures as she has high bilirubin and is slightly jaundiced. I thought it might have been PSC coming back
I was just wondering if anyone else had any experience of this type of rejection. I found some scientific literature detailing some cases, but it doesn't look like there is an agreed way to diagnose or treat.
She is only 32, but the Drs say young women sometimes face more difficulties with rejection due to having the strongest immune systems,
