Question on treatments after transplant GVHD issues

Hi All:

My husband is post transplant approaching 90 days, and has now developed some skin GVHD and his liver enzymes had been high.
The doctors put him on high dose IV steroids to bring the liver levels down and that seems to be working.
Has anyone had this type of liver GVHD and if so if it happens before the 100 days will it clear up later on when he is off the steroids.
It is very unsettling.
Please write with experiences with GVHD, I would appreciate any input.
The doctors said he may be a bit behind in his progress due to his age and he had a MUD transplant mini transplant and has done well so far.
Thanks for any help.
Sincerely
Wife and caregiver Christine
