Hmm...are you sure the doctor doesnt want to do prednisone and cellcept. Generally we have to be on prednisone to help since it works so quickly until the cellcept has plenty of time to work. And I do not want to go into detail w/ you on how cellcept treated me as I was an odd ball and it was not a good thing. I don't want you to worry about
what might happen. In my experience, the best thing to do is go on what the doctor is saying. They are trained to deal with these situations.
Prednisone is good short term...but very dangerous in long term effects, which is why am thinking the dr wants to use both and eventually cut back on the pred...
When do you guys go back to the doc?
