So my kidneys are not in remission and I am seriously ticked. I am down to 5mg of pred (it is an evil friend, like a backhanded compliment.......)
So mon I see my Neph and I think I will be on Cellcept. I will have to get off the Azathioprine, can't be on both at the same time.
I dont know of anyone who's ever been on Cellcept for UC and there is not much data out there.
So please wish me luck. I go about 1-2 times a day sometimes I even skip a day and have my life partially back.
going through all this I do not feel like myself anymore.......I am going to ask Neph to recommend someone I can talk to about living with chronic illness
Beth, 32 ~ hoping to taper pred successfully, wish me luck!
