  • Hi,

    Had my TX in July 2017.  I battled the BK Virus from Sept. of last year.  The highest it has been is 28,000 copies per mL.  It took approx 6 months for it to register below 500 copies per mL.  That is the cutoff on the what the test can identify.  They reduced my immuno meds as well,  I know it is frustrating but as long as the BK level shows consistent reductions, you will be fine.  It just takes time - something I'm becoming very accustomed to in this process.  Congratulations on your trannsplant!
