If the Dr stopped the Imuran before starting the Cellcept, that is reasonable treatment along with cortisone. So I'd say yes, this treatment is correct.

How long to control Lupus sickness & life expectancy --- there are no real guidelines -- it can be fairly minor for some people and fast-moving and major for others. Lupus is called the 'disease of 1000 faces' -- everyone has different symptoms and different reactions to treatment.

Once in a while I see statistics that say most people live more than 10 years, but not everyplace has any predictions at all.

Sounds like you & your wife are on the right path for controlling her symptoms. Be patient and keep doing the best you can! Let us know if we can help with any other questions.
