BK virus post transplant

Hi. Does anyone have any experience or knowledge about this virus. I've just been diagnosed. I don't know what my viral load is and I'll be going for a biopsy soon. Can anyone tell me anything about treatment and how likely it is for my graft to fail?

Re: BK virus post transplant

I was diagnosed with with the BK virus in a urine culture and then in the blood culture. I had to have a biopsy and thankful it had not effected the kidney. I was told if it had, the only treatment they would use was reducing my rejection medications.
